Call for Papers

The progressive agenda and international trade negotiations

Deadline : March 20, 2019

Thematic number of Papers in Political Economy

The progressive agenda and international trade negotiations

Stéphane Paquin, Professor at the National School of Public Administration
Hubert Rioux, Postdoctoral Fellow and Banting Fellow, National School of Public Administration.

1. Perspectives

Since 2017, the Government of Canada has been promoting a "progressive" agenda for international trade. The latter advocates a more equitable global (and regional) trade that serves the middle class and the most vulnerable.
In order to implement this project, Canada is attempting to incorporate new "social" and "environmental" clauses into trade agreements. The Government of Canada is committed to reforming trade treaties in a number of areas, including labor rights, the environment and climate change, gender equality, and the rights of First Nations. This progressive agenda was one of the themes of the G7 Summit hosted by Canada in 2018.
This agenda contrasts sharply with the ambient populism and the return of economic nationalism and then protectionism all over the world. In addition, it also contrasts with some of Canada’s own business practices, particularly with respect to environmental matters and with respect to First Nations.

2. Thematic Issue

The purpose of this special issue is to take stock of what the "progressive" trade agenda represents in Canada, but also in other parts of the world, including the European Union.
This call for papers is open to these issues being addressed from different angles - theoretical, historical, commercial, fiscal, legal, political, diplomatic, security, environmental, trade union and social, etc.
This thematic issue is intended to be one of the first meeting points for researchers working on international trade, progressive social policies, and economic nationalism.
