Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on India's position at the WTO, especially during the WTO negotiations launched in Doha, Qatar, in 2001. The article notes that although trade in India has exploded— especially after 2002—India has the dubious distinction of being the world's leading user of antidumping duties. This suggests that trade liberalization since 1991 has been partly undone with the increase use of antidumping measures. With respect to Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights, several issues are addressed such as whether the WTO is the right organization to implement an international agreement on intellectual property rights, and what—if any—is the relationship between intellectual property rights and international trade through channels such as technology transfers and increased FDI. The article examines India's stance on agriculture, one of the key issues surrounding the Doha round.

Keywords: WTO negotiations, antidumping duties, trade liberalization, international agreement, intellectual property rights, FDI
