Geneva, Switzerland

Roberto Azevedo, Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO), looking at the documents left in place for him, just before a meeting of the WTO's General Council, the institution's highest-level decision-making body.

The World Trade Organisation has 164 members, and in theory, negotiates and regulates global trade. It is, however, in crisis: New multi-lateral trade negotiations have been stalled for years, while it's principle dispute settlement body, the 'crown jewels' of the WTO and the global trading system, is almost completely blocked.
