Collins, D. A. ORCID: 0000-0002-5517-6949, Park, T. J. and Lee, J. H. (2021). A Soft Landing for Developing Countries and Non-Discrimination in Digital Trade: Possible Lessons from Asian Countries. Journal of World Trade, 55(4), pp. 649-665.

Abstract

The article suggests the implementation of certain legal devices to enable developing countries to achieve policy flexibility to take advantage of the opportunities presented by the expansion of digital trade while balancing some of the risks which this may present to consumers in the sphere of privacy as well as threats to governments in the form of national security. These include a ‘renegotiation clause’ as well as the familiar classification of ‘special and differential treatment’ for developing or least-developed countries.
