This collection of essays is dedicated to Arthur Dunkel who presided over the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) between 1980 und 1993. As Director-General during a crucial period for international trade, he is credited with being the chief architect of the Uruguay Round of Multilateral Trade Negotiations. Among the contributors in this volume are not only distinguished trade policy makers of today, eminent academics from international economics and law, and leaders of international institutions and business, but also prominent players in the Uruguay Round negotiations. Their experiences, reminiscences and analyses make this volume a unique contribution, offering a rare insight into what went into the Uruguay Round and the making of the World Trade Organization (WTO), and what lies beyond.
