The Decade-Long Membership of the Philippines in the World Trade Organization

It has been more than ten years since the Philippines signed into the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade-Uruguay Round. Yet, there has been no objective, systematic assessment on what the country has achieved in the multilateral arena of international trade. This research-publication on the decade-long membership of the Philippines in the World Trade Organization intends to fill gaps in research on the implementation of WTO-based policies by offering political economy perspective to the discourse. With heuristic tools drawn from different social science disciplines, the research reinforces the position of the university in trade policy-making issues.
