South-South and North-South Trade Agreements

Compatibility Issues

In this special issue, five articles address some of the challenges associated with integrating an existing S-S regional agreement with a new template that results from block negotiations with a northern partner. The compatibility issues this raises range from whether the N-S component will promote or block ongoing regional integration to whether the smallest countries in the Southern block will be able to capture any of the expected gains from the completion of N-S negotiations.
