Civil society participation in trade policy-making in Latin America: reflections and lessons
Newell, Peter; Tussie, Diana
This paper examines the questions of civil society engagement with trade policy in Latin America, identifying factors which affect participation. The paper compares three sets of trade negotiations and institutional arrangements and examines each case through a comparative analysis of the dynamics of the environmental, labour and women's movements. Lessons are derived about the possibilities of constructing mechanisms of participation and representation in trade policy.
