The special issue aims to foster academic debate between different paradigmatic perspectives on European Union external trade policies. Empirically a wide range of trade- related topics are covered such as the EU-South Korea and EU-Canada agreements, the labour and agricultural dimensions of trade policies, and the Lisbon Treaty provisions.
Theoretically, the authors use different perspectives including rational choice institutionalism, intergovernmentalism, historical institutionalism, constructivism, political ecology and critical social theory. The editors evaluate the possibilities and pitfalls of paradigmatic cross-fertilization based on the contributions to this special issue.
