Product Overview

`This remarkable and insightful volume is of great value to practitioners and analysts who deal with deadlocks that may arise in multilateral negotiations of various kinds. The range of solutions available for resolving the different types of deadlocks is set out especially clearly and comprehensively.' Robert M. Stern Professor of Economics and Public Policy, Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, University of Michigan

`Amrita Narlikar, an influential analyst of the issues relating to multilateralism, has brought together some of the best contributions to this hugely important subject. She deserves our gratitude and attention.' Jagdish Bhagwati University Professor, Columbia University, and author of in Defense of Globalization

`This theoretically sophisticated book makes a significant contribution to the literature on negotiation. Its focus on the multilateral level is particularly timely given the current stalemate in many global negotiations.' John Ravenhill Australian National University

`Amrita Narlikar offers us a path-breaking theory to understand deadlocks in multilateral negotiations, All the writers in this volume engage with this theory-from the standpoint of different disciplines: law, politics, economics, history, and international relations-and help to illuminate our understanding of why deadlocks arise in multilateral negotiations. This book is a "must read" for students and practitioners of multilateral negotiations concerned with finding solutions to the many global challenges of our time in trade, climate change and security issues!' Faizel Ismail Head of the South African Delegation to the WTO, and author of Mainstreaming Development in the WTO: Developing Countries in the Doha Round (2007) and Reforming the World Trade Organization: Developing Countries in the Doha Round (2009)

`Amrita Narlikar has put together a valuable collection of essays on the ingredients of success and failure in multilateral negotiations. The approach is multi-disciplinary, as well as being both theoretical and empirical. This book has a coherent and disciplined structure, as the authors of individual chapters relate their analyses to the conceptual framework laid out at the start by Narlikar. The volume makes a useful contribution to our thinking about the dynamics of negotiation and how to understand their results.' Patrick Low Chief Economist, World Trade Organization
