    This course is to study the multilateral and bilateral trade institutions under which individual countries interact with one another to maximize their trade benefits. Based on theory and principles of international trade laws and customs, this class explores trade strategies and approaches manifested during various trade negotiations. In-depth study about the World Trade Organization and Free Trade Agreements enhances our understanding about trade negotiations and decision-making behaviors made by countries. Special attention is given to the Agreement on Agriculture in the WTO. It incorporates the cases of trade disputes among the WTO member countries and multilateral negotiation simulations by student groups.
