Summary
After 15 years the WTO is not functioning as envisioned and is faced with many new trade challenges - climate change, terrorism, pandemics, genetically modified organisms, food safety - which it is ill-equipped to handle. Conflict, Chaos and Confusion sheds light on this deep and acute crisis, focusing on contentious and complex new trade issues and how they will affect international trade in the future. William Kerr demonstrates that there is no obvious way forward out of the current antagonistic climate. In the absence of any constructive initiatives the system appears chaotic. Everyone from
