In spite of many years of negotiation on trade liberalization, progress seems to have stalled. This book explores the questions of why the resistance to further market liberalization seems so strong, when the benefits are seen to outweigh the costs. What is it about the domestic actors and interests, political institutions, the ideas that frame and underpins trade interests and the interplay between domestic and international politics, which makes further liberalisation so difficult? This volume argues that in order to understand the slow progress of WTO negotiations, we need to take into consideration the 'intermestic' character of trade politics, that is, the way in which international and domestic aspects of politics and policies have been woven together and become inextricably related to each other. This is a general trend in a globalizing world that is most pronounced in the case of trade politics and policy. This book therefore presents an in depth analysis of institutions, ideas, interests and actors in the interplay between international trade negotiations and the national negotiating positions. At the international level the authors focus on the multilateral negotiations within the World Trade Organization (WTO) together with the plurilateral and bilateral negotiations on free trade agreements. At the regional and domestic level they analyze the trade politics and policies of two established powers, the European Union and the USA, two rising powers, China and India, and a small industrialized country with an open economy, Norway.
