International trade negotiations are at a crucial stage. The multilateral front, with the World Trade Organization (WTO) at its center, is facing a foundational crisis. In a new expert brief, The High Stakes in Regional Trade Talks, Jaime Zabludovsky Kuper and Sergio Gómez Lora explain that the future of international trade, at least in the short and medium term, depends heavily on the outcome of regional agreements such as the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).
