    Abstract

    Part I examines mechanisms used in the United States for private firms to work with the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) to challenge foreign trade barriers. It addresses, in particular, how the USTR and private firms use the “Section 301” and “Special 301” processes-pursuant to which USTR identifies, investigates and takes action against foreign trade barriers-to ratchet up pressure on foreign countries in order to expand access to their markets. Part II examines the relevant mechanisms used in the European Union, in particular the intergovernmental article 113 process (pursuant to which the EU Member States form a “common commercial policy”) and the EU’s trade barrier regulation (the EU’s analogue-and response-to the United States’ Section 301 procedure). Part III assesses the extent to which U.S. and EU private firms and trade representatives coordinate their efforts to challenge foreign trade barriers, and the factors that constrain their cooperation.
