    Abstract

    There is a growing concern that Preferential Trading Agreements (PTAs) go far beyond the scope of current WTO agreements, maybe creating unfair trade relations. This Blueprint looks in detail at all the provisions of all the PTAs signed by the EC or the US and other WTO members. Henrik Horn, Petros C. Mavroidis and André Sapri find that Europe and the US have adopted very different approaches to PTAs; however, both powers may also be seeking to protect their global regulatory priorities.
