    [From the Introduction]. The Doha trade round has reached a critical stage, after five years of stop-start negotiations. Many are pessimistic and feel that the international mood is insufficiently engaged to bring success. Nevertheless, a deal may in fact be closer than some might imagine, especially if sufficient political will can be generated at the ongoing WTO negotiations in Geneva and the forthcoming G8 summit in St. Petersburg. The Doha Development Agenda (DDA) negotiations are the first global trade talks to treat development issues as a priority. After the failure of the previous Millennium round amid riots and mayhem at Seattle in 1999, the big ‘Quad countries’ (US, EU, Japan and Canada) recognised that progress in global trade could only continue if those in developing countries believe that free trade reform will benefit them.
