Explaining the Erosion of Agricultural Exceptionalism in the Uruguay Round
Chapter 4 begins with an account of the most important reasons explaining why agricultural exceptionalism was sustained for almost half a century within the GATT, and then concentrates on identifying and examining the factors bringing about change showing how agricultural exceptionalism was eroded in the Uruguay Round. From the early 1960s, the United States had attempted to align trade rules for farm products with those for other industries, but unsuccessfully; and it was not until the Uruguay Round, negotiated and implemented as a Single Undertaking, and under pressure from the United States and the Cairns Group, that trading partners were able to agree a new trade regime for agriculture. The United States and the EU withdrew from GATT 1947, and created the new WTO.
