Trade policy in multilevel government

In a new book, Christian Freudlsperger examines how multilevel polities organise openness in a globalising economy.

Christian Freudlsperger, a postdoctoral researcher at the Hertie School and Research Coordinator at the Jacques Delors Centre, develops a new theory of domestic institutions that enable multilevel polities to organise openness in a globalising economic and political order in his new book “Trade Policy in Multilevel Government,” published by Oxford University Press.

He further demonstrates the significance of public contracting for the domestic and international politics of “deep trade” and makes a comparison between three systems of multilevel government: the European Union, Canada and the United States.
