Andrew Charlton co-author of The Right to Trade book



Aid for trade is a fixture in the development landscape, accounting for approximately 25 per cent of total official development assistance (ODA), and is being positioned as a building block in the future development agenda beyond the 2015 expiry of the Millennium Development Goals. 
In
 The Right to Trade, Nobel Prize-winning economist Joseph E. Stiglitz and Andrew Charlton argue that aid for trade has not delivered on its initial promise.
To create a genuinely pro-development trade liberalization agenda, the authors propose that a "right to trade" and a "right to development" be enshrined within the WTO’s dispute settlement system; and that aid for trade funds be consolidated into a coherent and predictable framework, where dedicated funds are committed by rich countries to a Global Trade Facility and dispersed through a transparent and competitive process.
