Stalemate at the WTO: TRIPS, Agricultural Subsidies, and the Doha Round Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

This note examines disputes over intellectual property enforcement and agricultural trade barriers at the center of the Doha Round of World Trade Organization (WTO) discussions. Fundamental principles of intellectual property rights and agricultural subsidies are described, together with the challenges of creating and operating multilateral institutions.

The note begins with a brief history of multilateral negotiations under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), then describes key events of the Doha Round that commenced in 2001, and the WTO's dispute resolution procedure. A stalemate has developed between developing and developed nations in WTO discussions, resulting in the proliferation of bilateral deals. The note challenges readers to come up with an educated position on global trade governance and also the economic gains and political tradeoffs associated with decreased trade barriers and the elimination of domestic subsidies.
