Book Description

February 12, 2004 0199261733 978-0199261734
Recent transatlantic relations have been plagued by a seemingly endless series of disputes over trade and other economic and political interests. Some of these disputes have been amongst the most prominent of the W.T.O. era: the Bananas Case, the Beef Hormones Case and over the application of the Helms-Burton Act. This book analyzes the source of transatlantic disputes, the means employed to prevent and settle such disputes both bilaterally and through the dispute settlement mechanism of the of the W.T.O., and to identify promising areas for reform. This book begins with a survey of transatlantic governance and dispute settlement problems. Part II analyzes 14 case-studies of transatlantic economic and regulatory disputes written by leading E.U. and U.S. experts. The analytical papers in Part III examine the disputes in the broader context of legal, economic and political theories of dispute prevention and dispute settlement. Part IV offers policy recommendations from E.U. and U.S. policy-makers and academics. Most of the more than 20 contributors conclude that joint E.U.-U.S. leadership in multilateral institutions (e.g. for trade liberalization, dispute prevention and dispute settlement in the W.T.O.) offers advantages over bilateral approaches. By contrast, a potential transatlantic free-trade association (T.A.F.T.A.) remains a second-best approach which might not prevent many of the transatlantic disputes over internal trade-related domestic policies. Transatlantic initiatives e.g. for regulatory cooperation and citizen-oriented institutional reforms can, however, serve as precedents for multilateral reforms (e.g. of W.T.O. rules).
