Abstract:

WTO: Agricultural Trade and North South DivideA. C. Shukla and Vandana AsthanaA vibrant and functional global economy is the basis for continued economic and social advancement. But it is difficult to achieve even optimal levels of functional economy and sustainable development. The current economic framework envisages free trade and multilateralism in working through the norms and processes of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and a frame of reference for globalization around trade holds validity. A multilateral rule based regime is said to provide an opportunity to timely impose order on the processes of globalization. But in such prescriptions, we can discern dilemmas for reasons, why such regimes might receive support or opposed by nations with diverse perceptions of national policy. It is true that some countries in the process gain over others in such regime. All countries maintain selective controls in sectors they regard sensitive. A multilateral rule based approach may appeal to those that hold reservations about open trade. Rules are meant to provide smaller nations a defensive system against demands of larger nations or transnational corporations. However, doubts about such regimes and overriding imbalances in power relations may persist in the process as weakness.It may be emphasized that attempts to ?developmentalize? and ?democratize? the WTO are nothing more than a public relations exercise carried out by the powerful nations to vouch corporate interests. Power politics in WTO is obstructing the path of fair play and giving rise to group politics. The developing nations are aggressively pushing their interests collectively. WTO stands today at the dichotomy of North and South divide represented by European Union and United States combine and developing countries. Acting in response, the developing nations instead of being navigated to bullying tactics by choice adopted the strong stand reflected in WTO summit at Cancun. This paper examines agricultural trade and North South divide in World Trade Organization.
