Description de l’éditeur

This article examines the use of sanitary and phytosanitary (SPS) standards as a method for protectionism through the lens of political economy. Technical measures, especially SPS, remain a potential barrier to free trade, in spite of substantial progress on trade liberalization under the Uruguay round of trade negotiations. In fact, in the 1986-93 Uruguay Bound negotiations, separate disciplines were negotiated for the management of SPS standards, which are highly technical and relatively nontransparent compared with other international standards. This study examines the political economy of one contentious trade dispute that has arisen under the SPS Agreement, the import of Mexican Haas avocados into the United States. The history of the dispute is traced and new evidence is provided on the rent-seeking activity of U.S. producers. The SPS Agreement and Developing Countries
