Abstract

At a time when global poverty is at its lowest, how can it be that income inequality is higher than it has been since the end of the Second World War? How have global trade and international law shaped these trends? Can we connect economic inequality at the domestic and international levels?

Keywords: international law, development, trade, inequality, poverty reduction, World Trade Organization, political economy
