Geneva, Switzerland

The United Kingdom desk at the WTO just before a meeting of the WTO's General Council, the institution's highest-level decision-making body. The UK has recently taken steps to exist at the WTO as a sperate entity from the EU. Its delegation is now at the far end of the same table as the EU delegation.

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.
