SP132 - Developing countries and the future of the multilateral order
Convened by Wil Hout (International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), the Netherlands)

The panel focuses on the contemporary pressure on the multilateral (“liberal”) international order and the consequences for developing countries. The objective of the workshop is to bring together a group of development studies experts who reflect on the impact of changes in the multilateral order for developing countries. The aim is to attract draft papers that are comparative in nature, and focus on comparisons of developing countries in particular regions (for instance, Africa versus Asia or Latin America) or relate to specific categories of developing countries (such as least developed countries, landlocked or small-island developing countries).
