Changing Gears on Global Economic Policymaking Coherence: Policy Choices, Flexibility and Diversity in Development Strategies.
This TRADE Analysis provides a brief overview of the “Coherence” agenda in the World Trade Organization (WTO) and tries to inject a new perspective on how such agenda can be made to serve the development goals and interests of developing countries. It emphasizes that the recognition of “policy space” and the placement of development goals as the central foci of coherence in global economic policymaking, can be used to form the core of a more positive “Coherence” agenda in favor of developing countries’ development interests in the WTO and the Bretton Woods institutions.
