This chapter brings together information on the empirical effects of domestic procurement linkages in those jurisdictions considered in the earlier parts of the book: the United States, Malaysia, Canada, South Africa, and the EC. It shows that in some jurisdictions, particularly Canada and the United States, there have been sustained attempts to identify the effects of different types of procurement linkages, but that in many jurisdictions there has been relatively little empirical research conducted, thus rendering judgments of proportionality more difficult in the interpretative legal context, as well as reducing the extent to which public policy decisions on whether or not to adopt procurement linkages can be evidence-based. The chapter also reflects on the main themes of the book and presents some conclusions.

Keywords:   procurement linkages, procurement regulation, equal status, social policy, United States, Canada, Malaysia, South Africa, EC
