Publisher Description

Ian Taylor and Karen Smith present a much-needed and full examination of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), covering its history and current activities. All the key areas are covered by accessibly written chapters, including:

an overview of UNCTAD: what it is, why it was formed and why it is important
how the organization operates today: what it does and how it does it
key criticisms made against the organization: is it relevant in today’s world?
emerging issues within the organization and its future direction.

In the current era of globalization and what appears to be the dominance of neo-liberal economic thought, UNCTAD has sought to make itself germane to ongoing international debates. The implications of this for the organization’s key remit, namely making the world a fairer place, are something that this book unpacks.
