Guyomar, Hervé and Le Bris, Katell. (2003) Multifunctionality, Agricultural Trade and WTO Negotiations: A Review of Interactions and Issues. ENARPRI Working Paper No. 4, December 2003. [Working Paper]
When the Doha Round was undertaken in November 2001, non-trade concerns (NTCs) were specifically recognised and integrated into the negotiation process, albeit to a limited extent. In a general way, multifunctionality opponents see arguments put forward by the multifunctionality proponents as an attempt by the corresponding countries to resist agricultural trade liberalisation and continue protecting and supporting agriculture. This paper contributes to the debate by considering the broad set of issues associated with the design and implementation of trade, support and multifunctionality policies in the hope providing policy-makers with a notion of the issues and the trade-offs involved.
