The Trade and Development Policy of the European Union

The Trade and Development Policy of the European Union

(p.128) 4 The Trade and Development Policy of the European Union
Developments in EU External Relations Law

Lorand Bartels

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores the evolution of trade and development policy, and in particular, recent changes that increasingly seek to incorporate broader concepts of sustainable development into external policy as a whole and to place Union trade and development policy within global development strategies, including the Millennium Development Goals and the Doha Development Round of negotiations within the WTO. It argues that the main challenge for the EU is how to achieve a trade and development policy that can be justified in terms of economic needs, is WTO compatible, and at the same time takes account of the needs of those countries that have become dependent on historical preferences.

Keywords:   French Union, Treaty of Rome, WTO, GATT, international relations, external policy, trade agreements
