21st Century European Trade Politics

(p.215) 9 Conclusions
Parochial Global Europe

Chapter 9 concludes by highlighting how variation in politics across trade policy instruments—trade policy sub-systems—produces distinctive policies. It reflects on the implications of this analysis for the EU’s capacity to act strategically and to be an effective global actor. In addition, it considers the implications of treating trade policy as being composed of multiple policies for the broader IPE literature on trade policy. Our central argument is re-stated: explaining the European Union’s behavior as an economic superpower requires understanding policy sub-systems, some of which conspire to encourage Europe to behave very parochially even as it seeks influence globally.

Keywords:   EU trade policy, international political economy, policy sub-systems
