About the Author

Arlindo Cunha is Professor of European Economy at Portuguese Catholic University, Porto. He worked as an economist and director at the Northern Portugal Regional Development Board (1976-86), and spent most of his life implementing the CAP and negotiating its reforms: was Minister of State at the Ministry of Agriculture (1986-90), Minister for Agriculture (1990-94) and Member of the European Parliament (1994-2003). In 2003-2004 Cunha became President of Northern Portugal Regional Development Board and Minister of Environment, Cities, Regional Development and Land Planning (2004).

Alan Swinbank is Emeritus Professor of Agricultural Economics at the University of Reading, where he had been since 1977. In the mid-1970s he spent four years as a junior administrator in the Directorate-General for Agriculture in the Commission of the European Communities. His research and teaching focussed on the food and farm policies of the EU, and on the WTO (World Trade Organization) process of agri-food trade liberalisation. In recent years Swinbank has published in the European Review of Agricultural Economics, Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics, Food Policy, Journal of Common Market Studies, Journal of World Trade, The World Economy, and others, and co-authored (with Carsten Daugbjerg) Ideas, Institutions and Trade (OUP 2009).
