An Introduction to Trade, WTO, and Energy Security: Linkages for India

  • Sajal Mathur


International trade, World Trade Organization (WTO), and energy security are three broad topics that each could be subject to standalone and detailed analysis. While some work has been done to examine the interface in an international context, there has been little or no work done to map the inter-linkages or implications for India. This introduction and the subsequent chapters seek to address and fill this gap.
