Formatted abstract
There is a conflict between what is tariff 'preference' and what is tariff ~discrimination', yet they are the same thing. A country implementing a Tariff Preference Scheme increases free trade on the one. hand yet continues to protect itself from certain suppliers on the other. This thesis draws attention to a deficiency in the literature and that is the aversion to analyse the discriminatory effects of, such arrangements as the Generalised System of Preferences and the Lome convention. The aversion is due in part to the Developed Countries economic situation and the belief that the Developing Countries 'should' grant the LDC's better access to their markets as a type of aid~ It is also due to the second best nature of such arrangements.
