Subject: BHA: Negotiations

Hi everyone
I am reaching a crucial point in the empirical component of  my PhD research (at the WTO) and need to find some analytical/theoretic tools/instruments....
Does CR have a set of tools to explain/understand Negotiation Dynamics, Group Dynamics, Pôwer Dynamics in Groups/Negotiations or Bargaining. I am looking a the under-representation of Least Developed Countries in the shaping of the Gatt over 50 years and how this has effectively resulted in the poorest of the poor countries having no say in the systems/structures/rules that facilitate international economic relations with the WTO being the pre-eminent example of how this structural inequality is emedded in the institutions of global governance...
sort of like:
"Men make their own history, but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances, but under circumstances existing already, given and transmitted from the past."
Will be grateful for ANY assistance... Please remember I am in Geneva and have VIRTUALLY NO access to literature.

There May be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there never must be a time when we fail to protest." Elie Wiesel (1928- ) Writer, Nobel Laureate
