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.

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: Abstract: States may fail to abide by their international agreements because they do not properly implement domestic laws necessary for compliance. Domestic institutions and politics can explain why states ratify treaties and yet implement them only poorly, and how this can affect prospects for compliance. Quantitative and qualitative analysis finds preliminary support for the theory.
