ABOUT US: DWRTC is a biannual journal published by the GNLU, with its 1st issue already published in March 2011. Within a short time it has got immense recognition from the legal academia all over the world. The Journal deals with the burning issues regarding the legal implications on the trade and commercial front and its competition interface in the international scenario.

Multilateral trade and developmental institutions, the World bank, the WTO, UNCTAD and similar other bodies, have started pursuing, although very late, a co-ordinated and cohesive strategy to understand the competition issues having direct impact on the promotion of world trade and avoidance of trade conflicts.

Their efforts have to be supplemented by research and academic institutions all across the world. DWRTC is such a venture on the part of GNLU to bring together policy-makers, executives , judiciary and academicians to discuss the solutions provided by synergy of reconciling trade and competition policy and issues and at the same time, propose practical and feasible recommendations and practices.

Such holistic approach has so far not been adopted by any institution in India. The Journal firmly believes in strengthening national policies and promoting global trust through common understanding of competition issues for promoting world trade and prevents trade conflicts at large.
