Overview

Genetically modified (GM) agricultural crops which are approved as safe in North America (Canada and the United States) are facing significant regulatory hurdles in gaining access to the European Union.

"The book makes a superb contribution to an often fractious and difficult debate, and it deserves to be widely read."
European Review of Agricultural Economics
"The book makes a superb contribution to an often fractious and difficult debate, and it deserves to be widely read."
In an attempt to account for the regulatory hurdles faced by genetically modified (GM) agricultural crops approved as safe in the US but facing major regulatory hurdles in gaining access to the European Union, Isaac (management and marketing, U. of Saskatchewan, Canada) provides a study aiming to identify the challenge of transatlantic regulatory regionalism and social regulatory barriers to trade diplomacy, As well, he proposes a regulatory development and integration strategy that he argues could overcome regulatory regionalism while remaining sensitive to the regional differences in regulatory development. Intended for academics, students, policymakers, and others interested in the regulation and trade of genetically modified agricultural crops. Distributed by Oxford U. Press. Annotation c.
