Abstract

This article focuses on the failure of the current international trade regime to protect the rights and legitimate interests of developing countries. The article provides a summary of the current international trade regime, and then proceeds to examine international trade principles in relation to developing countries. The article then explores the environmental consequences of international trade and the GATT on the developing countries, and finally examines the future for developing countries with regard to the international trade order. The article concludes that in today's international community, progress towards environmentally sustainable prosperity can best be achieved through international economic institutions that protect the interests of all states, irrespective of wealth.
