Chapter Summary

This chapter analyzes the current dynamics of transnational advocacy directed at the World Trade Organization (WTO), focusing specifically on transnational advocacy organizations. It examines the strategies of these organizations and the ways in which they are engaging with and seeking to influence the WTO. The chapter argues that an important transformation is taking place in the dynamics of transnational advocacy as these organizations respond to the opportunities and constraints they face at the WTO. Specifically, transnational advocacy organizations are coming to rely increasingly on technical knowledge and expertise as a key source of influence at the WTO. In effect, what is occurring is the technocratization of transnational advocacy, in which these organizations are becoming progressively more technocratic in their approach to the WTO.

Keywords: technocratization; transnational advocacy organizations; World Trade Organization (WTO)
