Overview

Twenty papers, presented by Kelly (international political economy, U. of Warwick, UK) and Grant (politics, U. of Warwick, UK), provide an overview of economic and political issues surrounding international trade and its role in the international economy. Contributions on international trade actors discuss the World Trade Organization and the regulation of international trade, the relationship between civil society and the world trade system, and business and government in international policymaking. Issues-based papers examine trade and security, agricultural trade, the political economy of international trade and the environment, the progress of the trade and labor standards debate, intellectual property rights, and the General Agreement on Trade in Services. The final group of papers is devoted to regional dynamics, with case studies of the trade policy of the US, Brazil, Germany, South Africa, Japan, China, and a number of regional blocs.
