Conference: The WTO in Difficult Times: New Challenges and New Prospects

The Singapore Management University School of Law and the Asian WTO Research Network will host a conference on "The WTO in Difficult Times: New Challenges and New Prospects," October 10-11, 2008, in Singapore. The program is here. Why attend?
The subprime meltdown, inflation, global food shortage, and rising oil prices . . . the world has become a very different place as we entered 2008. How will the new economic environment affect the World Trade Organization (WTO), and how shall the WTO deal with these new challenges in such difficult time? Bringing together leading WTO scholars from Asia and beyond, this international conference will provide a good opportunity to reflect upon some of the most pressing issues facing the multilateral trading system today.
