Consensus decision-making is prevalent in the WTO system's decision-making process. The analysis of the common consensus mechanism is the primary focus of this research article. The consensus norm represents the idea of national sovereignty, which is based on the idea that all countries are equal, regardless of their size, economic might, or political influence. However, it has some disadvantages, so it also makes an effort to highlight the implications of the consensus mechanism in the context of developing countries. As a result, suggestions are made for using consensus to make decisions while taking developing nations into account.
