Trade negotations in Latin America
problems and prospects
Latin America has a pivotal role to play in international trade negotiations. This cutting edge analysis by a broad-based network of researchers - the Latin American Trade Network (LATN) - of the promise and problems of trade policy focuses on the key issues for Latin American countries' participation in trade negotiations. On the shifting ground of expanding trade agendas, diversifying negotiation fora and emerging coalitions, the contributors analyse the management of sectors, the management of competition and conflict and the interplay of interests and coalitions. In addition, the long-term implications of commitments made at the Uruguay Round are considered, including the identification of windows of opportunity for policy formulation and issues that merit further attention at the multilateral, hemispheric and regional levels.
