Abstract: This paper finds that many executive agreements accrue exponentially and discusses subsequent implications for study. I then test the hypothesis that the annual number of standalone agreements modern presidents conduct has not risen significantly.

Abstract: Globalisation has brought diverse challenges to international relations discussions. Increasing emphasis on regionalisation processes along with “unilateralism versus multilateralism” discussions is also of this kind. While East Asia performs well with various regionalisation performances in recent years, environmental concerns are also topping the charts of national and regional agendas. Keeping in mind the global governance inquiry of the Convention, this paper focuses on environment agendas of the accelerating trend of regional free trade agreements and discusses whether there is a potential for the new scheme of China–Japan–Korea Free Trade Agreement (CJK FTA) to provide any regional governance mechanism for environmental concerns in East Asia.

The first part analyses the East Asian FTAs as instruments of “regional governance” by giving examples of FTAs configured by China, Japan, and Korea. The second part takes a quantitative turn with a CGE modeling and scrutinises potential economic outcomes of the trilateral proposal CJK FTA. The last part goes beyond economic calculations and questions how environmental concerns of the region could be addressed albeit the political expectations and shortcomings of CJK FTA. Quantitative analyses based on various databases (e.g., GTAP and UNStats) are applied for the argumentative approach of the paper.

Abstract: This paper addresses the issue of industrialization in the WTO regime, focusing on the role of asymmetric free trade agreements. Specifically, it seeks an explanation to the puzzle of why developing countries agree to policy limitations in asymmetric free trade agreements (FTAs) that they actively oppose in the multilateral forum of the World Trade Organization (WTO)? It proposes a framework where FTAs offer payoffs in terms of policy space and independence that are unavailable in their absence. To evaluate these payoffs, I explore the channels through which FTAs affect domestic policy decisions. The central conclusion of this research is that FTAs provide developing countries with additional policy flexibility in various stages of the negotiation and implementation process. Existing work on FTAs has treated them as a simple discontinuity for trade outcomes; the prospect that they might have positive outcomes on industrial policy space has been largely overlooked.Since it became clear that the WTO agreements would not deliver the growth and development results that the developing countries had expected, these countries have exhibited a distaste for any additional multilateral regulation of their domestic trade policies. Yet, at the same time, developing countries are actively negotiating and implementing asymmetric FTAs that include not only regulations that go beyond existing WTO commitments, but also regulations on activities that are not even covered multilaterally, such as e-commerce and telecommunications. There is no existing satisfactory explanation to non-linearity of this preference. In this paper, I suggest that the FTA “process” of negotiation and implementation contains a number of different opportunities to expand and enact industrial policies in ways that exceed existing WTO allowances. By relaxing the assumption that all FTAs are alike, several new features become apparent. First, in nearly every case, the FTA does not advance the developing country’s regulatory regime from a WTO baseline. Second, there are elements of FTAs that can enable developing countries to enact policies that would be non-compliant with the existing international trade regime in the absence of an FTA. Third, I expect to find a high degree of leeway in FTA implementation. This approach will use a political economy lens to examine a phenomenon that has been observed but not explained in several different literatures including international relations, economics, and law. By using an inherently interdisciplinary perspective, I hope to use this project not only to piece together the answer to this puzzle, but also to bridge the various elements of these related but discrete disciplines on this topic.

Abstract: Preferential trade agreements (PTAs) have become a ubiquitous feature of the contemporary international economic system. They can serve multiple purposes beyond the reduction of tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade, such as tackling negative social consequences of trade liberalization. For example, PTAs signed by the European Union (EU) try to improve social conditions in partner countries by including labor and environmental provisions. Yet to date, scholars have paid little attention to the effects of these provisions. Do they achieve their desired goals? This paper focuses on the implementation of labor and environmental provisions in the EU-Chile Association Agreement, the first bilateral PTA signed by the EU to address those issues. It argues that, despite some progress, the implementation has been hindered by the lack of capacity of the Chilean civil society and administrative capacity of the Chilean government. This lack has precluded a successful use of the mechanisms for improving labor and environmental conditions provided by the agreement. In order to fully understand the effects of various provisions in PTAs, attention needs to be paid to the implementation process and the mediating role of domestic political factors in PTA partners. The argument is supported by interview data with actors involved in the implementation of the EU-Chile agreement.
