The objectives of this project, supported financially by the U.K. Department for International Development (DFID), are to identify and analyze options for making the multilateral trading system more supportive of development, and in particular to follow up on a number of the specific recommendations made in the UN MDG taskforce report (“Trade for development”). A number of research papers generated by the project have been posted on the website of the Yale Center for the Study of Globalization under the heading Global Trade Reform. Posted papers address preference erosion, the need for and design of additional aid for trade mechanisms and new approaches towards special and differential treatment. The site also includes a summary of the main policy conclusions emerging from the project: “Strengthening the Global Trade Architecture for Economic Development: An Agenda for Action.” These papers listed below can all be downloaded from: http://www.ycsg.yale.edu/focus/researchPapers.html.
