Australia, the European Union and the New Trade Agenda

The final book from the Australia and the European Union project has been published and is now available through ANU Press: 'Australia, the European Union and the New Trade Agenda' edited by Annmarie Elijah, Don Kenyon, Karen Hussey and Pierre van der Eng.

This book brings together diverse and deeply practical contributions to the forthcoming policy debate on the Australia–EU Free Trade Agreement (FTA), highlighting potential points of difficulty and possible gains from the agreement. The book makes two further contributions: it adds to the body of work reappraising the contemporary Australia–EU relationship; and provides a snapshot of current issues in trade policy—the ‘new trade agenda’—which is more complex and politically visible than ever. The issues confronting Australia and the EU in forthcoming negotiations are those confronting policy makers around the globe. They are testing public tolerance of decisions once viewed as dull and technocratic, and are redefining the academic treatment of trade policy.

The book can be downloaded free of charge through ANU Press:
