The Multilevel Politics of Trade presents a timely comparative analysis of eight federations (plus the European Union) to explore why some sub-federal actors have become more active in trade politics in recent years. As the contributing authors find, there is considerable variation in the intensity and modes of sub-federal participation. This they attribute to three key factors: the distinctive institutional features of federal systems; the nature and scope of trade policy and trade agreements; and the extent of social mobilization that accompanies a particular trade policy conversation.

As a whole, The Multilevel Politics of Trade argues that sub-federal actors’ interests (jurisdictional, political, and economic) are what motivate them to participate in trade debates. However, institutional configurations, coupled with the influence of civil society actors, political parties, and others determine the nature and scope of that participation. Informed by a deep knowledge of federal dynamics, this volume provides extensive comparative analyses of all seven of the North American and European federations and represents a significant intervention into the study of both federalism and political economy.

"Featuring insightful figures and tables to exemplify its theoretical arguments, this collection also includes a solid literature review, and a strong group of contributors who are all trade specialists in their country of expertise."

- Duane Bratt, Department of Economics, Justice, and Policy Studies, Mount Royal University

"Multilevel Politics of Trade is a major contribution to the field, and goes above and beyond to provide an analytical framework for explaining differences across federations in the role and influence of sub-national governments in trade policy. Including primary data in every chapter, this significant amount of original research is an important hallmark of this collection."

- Grace Skogstad, Department of Political Science, University of Toronto
