Abstract
The focus of this dissertation is upon the role of economic relations in the international legal system, with special emphasis on the newly established World Trade Organisation (Hereinafter, WTO) and its implications for developing countries. This organisation has replaced the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (Hereinafter, GATT) as the overall mechanism for regulating international trade. The trade policies of the WTO will be assessed in the light of how they affect developing countries in global trade. Issues of importance to be reviewed include the aims and principles of the WTO, factors leading to its institutionalisation and the improvements it makes upon the GATT, with due regard to the manner in which its laws affect the relationship between developed countries and developing ones in multilateral trade.
