Abstract

This article explores how the World Trade Organization, WTO, has understoodits role in contributing to development and particularly in its role in the rightto development. This last is conceived as a mechanism which all countries butparticularly those in development and the least developed can participate ina fair and equitable way in the economic benefits of trade. In this sense whathas happened in the WTO is analyzed, having particular emphasis on theresults of the Doha Round (November 9-13, 2001, Doha, Qatar).
