English abstract
Nearly two decades have passed since the events of the WTO’s Seattle Ministerial marked civil society as relevant to global trade politics. Despite this, and as the chapter explains, there remains significant ambiguity as to what is meant by the term ‘civil society’. That civil society matters in global trade governance needs to be understood in terms of two inter-related questions: how the WTO Secretariat, and other institutional actors, give recognition to certain groups and individuals; and, why it is that the actors described as ‘civil society’ seek to contest a governance domain often seemingly closed to their demands.
