What this website is about

This website focuses on the professional and personal interests of Robert D. Anderson, part-time academic, independent researcher, consultant, former WTO senior staff member and former staff member of the Canadian Competition Bureau. These comprise:


  • The history, rationale for and future of multilateralism;

  • International government procurement policy (centering on the WTO Agreement on Government Procurement and related regional and bilateral trade agreements);

  • Procurement reforms in emerging and developing economies;

  • The relationship of competition policy to government procurement;

  • International dimensions of competition policy; and

  • The relationship of competition policy and intellectual property rights.


NB: this website does NOT attempt to track the latest developments concerning WTO case law and negotiations. For that, Mr Anderson recommends the International Economic Law and Policy Blog (https://worldtradelaw.typepad.com/) and the website of the WTO itself (www.wto.org).
