The Strategic Dynamics of Latin American Trade

April 19, 2004 // 2:00pm5:00pm
Latin American Program
The increasing contentiousness of negotiations in the World Trade Organization and the Free Trade Area of the Americas has led policymakers and scholars alike to explore alternative paths to liberalize trade. The Strategic Dynamics of Latin American Trade applies political-economic analysis to compare the trade strategies of four nations—Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Mexico—each of which demonstrates a distinctive approach to institutional options at the bilateral, regional, and multilateral levels. This growing divergence among trade strategies and their various outcomes has important implications for political and economic relations in the region—as well as for the future of free trade institutions worldwide. The speakers will discuss these developments and share their views on the evolution of free trade in the Americas.
