Abstract

As part of the Doha Development Agenda many members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and in particular its Director-General have actively promoted the so-called Aid-for-Trade initiative. Rather than offer a comprehensive account of this initiative, the purpose here is to consider its implications for proposals to fill in the WTO's "missing middle," that is, for suggestions to develop the WTO's non-negotiating, non-juridical, deliberative functions.

Keywords: WTO, Aid-for-Trade initiative, Trade Policy, International Trade Organizations
