Developing members' positions in the shaping of trade rules has evolved considerably since the advent of the WTO as they have seized institutional opportunities for leveraging their emerging power. These transformations inform their approach to the Doha “Development” Round and their proposals throughout the Round. In part, developing members' increased voice stems from their strategic alliances and coordination in coalitions. Notably, they have successfully captured parts of the negotiation agenda, which is key to delineating the disciplines and commitments that might come out of a negotiation round. This chapter explores the evolution of developing country participation and their positioning at critical institutional “moments:” the inception of a new round of negotiations, the definition of the agenda for negotiations, and the tabling of substantive proposals.
