Despite the United States withdrawing from the Trans-Paci­c Partnership (TPP) Agreement, its template of rules remains highly relevant for future negotiations on international trade. This book helps to evaluate the legal provisions of this pact, its background and its possible evolutionary path.

There is a view in the policy discourse that India should actively embrace the norms contained in the Agreement. Trans-Paci­c Partnership Agreement: A Framework for Future Trade Rules? offers a balanced and objective analysis of the likely impact of the TPP template of rules on developing countries such as India and signi­ficantly contributes to the ongoing debate regarding India's ideal stance. This book will be useful for policymakers, trade lawyers, policy analysts, academics, economists and government off­icials, especially those from developing countries.
