Handbook on the EU and International Trade

Edited by Sangeeta Khorana, Business School, Faculty of Management, Bournemouth University and María García, Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies, University of Bath, UK

The Handbook on the EU and International Trade presents a multidisciplinary overview of the major perspectives, actors and issues in contemporary EU trade relations. Changes in institutional dynamics, Brexit, the politicisation of trade, competing foreign policy agendas, and adaptation to trade patterns of value chains and the digital and knowledge economy are reshaping the European Union's trade policy. The authors tackle how these challenges frame the aims, processes and effectiveness of trade policy making in the context of the EU's trade relations with developed, developing and emerging states in the global economy.

‘This Handbook is packed full of genuinely useful information. It covers all of the basics – with excellent chapters on the role of EU institutions, for example – and much more besides. EU trade policy has never been more complex or contested and this collection unpacks the issues in a clear and engaging way. Obligatory reading for anyone trying to understand EU trade.’
– Annmarie Elijah, Australian National University
