In this paper, we present research that speaks to the purpose and design of GATT. The paper proceeds in three basic steps. We first discuss the major theoretical approaches to the study of trade agreements. Next, we develop the institutional context for our study with a description of the history and design of GATT and the WTO. Finally, we draw on the theoretical literature in order to interpret and evaluate the institutional design of GATT.
