This text contains papers from a conference held after the Cancun World Trade Organization Ministerial meeting attended by prominent scholars & activists. The main objective of the conference was to distill issues on which Canada & Brazil could work together on common strategic interests to build a coalition & benefit from cooperation.
Main Description
In the current age of globalization, collaboration between nations is paramount. In September 2003, a group of academics, government officials, and business leaders gathered at the University of Calgary under the auspices of its Latin American Research Centre (LARC) to discuss issues related to international trade negotiations in agriculture. This innovative undertaking, which was a collaborative effort of York University, the University of Western Ontario, L'Université du Québec á Montréal, and the University of Calgary, had one main objective: to identify trade issues common to Canada and Brazil, and to formulate possible plans for co-operation and coalition building. Trade Negotiations in Agricultureis one result of this highly successful conference. Edited by William Kerr and James Gaisford, this collection highlights some of the outstanding contributions from conference participants, and provides useful background information for those who want to learn more about these important international economic issues.
Main Description
This first book in the new series 'Turning Points: Latin American Studies Occasional Papers' (a joint venture between the Latin American Research Centre and the University of Calgary Press) is the result of a conference immediately following the Cancun World Trade Organisation (WTO) Ministerial meeting attended by prominent scholars and activists. The main objective of the conference was to distil issues on which Canada and Brazil could work together on common strategic interests to build a coalition and benefit from cooperation. The book examines topics such as the roles of Brazil and Canada in the WTO and the Free Trade Area of the Americas (FTAA) and considers each country's position on specific trading issues. This book is a valuable resource for anyone engaged in or teaching contemporary trade negotiations.
