In October 2015, Cecilia Malmström, European Union Trade Commissioner, presented Trade for All, the trade strategy of the European Commission over the next years. While preserving the European social and regulatory model at home, bilateral and multilateral trade agreements will be pursued so as to improve market access in third countries and contribute to boosting jobs, growth and investment in the EU. This monograph analyses and discusses Trade for All from different perspectives based on key current debates on international trade. The book is structured around these debates. The first part corresponds to the multilateralism versus bilateralism debate, the second to the debate about the limits of trade liberalisation and the last focuses on the EU’s relations with developing and emerging economies.
