Sonia E. Rolland


Dr Sonia E. Rolland is an Associate Professor of Law at Northeastern University School of Law in Boston (USA). She publishes and teaches widely on trade and development. Prior to joining academia, she clerked for H.E. President Guillaume and H.E. Abraham at the International Court of Justice, and worked for the energy law practice of Sutherland Asbill & Brennan in Washington, DC.

Lectubook cover - Development at the WTOre Summary: Professor Rolland will discuss her recent book Development at the WTO (Oxford University Press, 2012). Seeking to open paths for reconsidering the trade and development relationship at the WTO, this book considers the impact of trade disciplines and WTO institutions on developing members. It shows that the shortcomings of the Doha Development Round are in part due to the failure to assess trade rules as part of the legal processes and institutions that produced them. It discusses alternative pathways for balancing trade integration and development constraints at the WTO.
