This course offers an introduction to international trade diplomacy from the perspective of WTO member governments. It will discuss the trade policies of major players, how they utilize trade policy tools such as preferential trade agreements, trade preference systems, trade remedies, non-tariff barriers, negotiations and dispute settlement, among others, to achieve their goals. Students will acquire a better understanding of the central role of the WTO as the world's trade regulatory body and its three main functions of multilateral negotiations, monitoring and dispute settlement. Taught by an experienced advisor to a foreign government, this course offers the unique opportunity for students to learn about complex international trade issues from the perspective of governments and practitioners of trade diplomacy. This course is recommended for students who want to understand the WTO, as well as the motivations behind the policies and actions of governments regarding international trade issues.
