Export control laws and regulations are the legal framework for countries around the globe to ensure world peace and stability and their importance in international trade is growing. The reasons behind this growth lie in the evolution of technology, the fact that increasing amounts of goods/services are subject to controls (such goods/services representing a very large segment of world trade), and the increasing threat linked to terrorism. Consequently, export control laws and regulations have become extremely important for those involved in the international trade of goods/services with a direct or even indirect military use. Export control laws and regulations are complex, difficult to understand, and constantly evolving. Infringements can lead to very serious sanctions (civil, administrative, or criminal), and, not to be minimized, the risk of serious damage to the corporate image of one or more parties to a questionable transaction. Yann Aubin and Arnault Idiart are involved in such issues on a day-to-day basis in their respective capacities as lawyer and export compliance officer within the European Aeronautics Defence and Space Company (EADS). They have gathered contributions from expert practitioners (EADS and Thales as well as Hogan and Hartson LLP) and university scholars (Paris 11 Law School/Institute of Space and Telecommunications Law (IDEST) faculty and advanced students) to make the Export Control Handbook as useful as possible. The Export Control Handbook provides a practical examination of the export/import control regimes of defense and dual use goods and services of a number of selected jurisdictions around the world (China; European Union; France; Germany; India; Italy; Japan; Russian Federation; Spain; United Kingdom; United States). The Handbook contains a very useful appendix including, among other things, compliance procedures and standard country-specific application (or related) forms. The aim of each country-specific chapter of the Handbook is to provide actionable information designed to guide foreign entities wishing to undertake production in the jurisdiction (e.g., through a local subcontractor or a local subsidiary (which could be a joint venture) in order to subsequently export that product anywhere in the world. The Export Control Handbook is invaluable to any international trade professional (lawyer, compliance officer, etc.) or entity with a need to know the specific requirements to be followed in the jurisdiction in question for the efficient and legally compliant import or export of controlled military or dual-use goods or services.

The book aims to make major contribution to the debates surrounding globalization and the impact of trade on the poor, on social stability and on the environment. It is intended to provide a benchmark for future policy discussion and analysis.

This new book highlights the multifaceted effects of regional trade agreements and outlines the strategic options for EU trade policy. It points out what is new about this most recent phase of regionalism and analyzes the effects on economic welfare and trade transaction costs. The authors draw upon elements of game theory to explore a self-reinforcing mechanism that is resulting in a potentially damaging race for markets. They focus in particular on the multiple impacts of regionalism on the WTO and the multilateral trading order. The book arrives at an opportune time, as the Doha Round is reaching a critical phase.

U.S. trade expansion has contributed to dramatic economic growth, but it has also led to new policy challenges: a ballooning trade deficit, anxiety about foreign competition, and a potential "race to the bottom" for labor and environmental regulation. This incisive new book examines these and other challenges facing U.S. trade policy. An introduction, presented in the form of an options memorandum to the U.S. president, provides context and critical assessment of various policy options. Four white papers look in greater detail at the specific challenges facing U.S. trade negotiators. They provide a framework for exploring the menu of policy options for the Bush administration. By making the sometimes arcane issues of trade accessible without sacrificing sophistication or detail, this volume is an invaluable teaching aid, guiding students and readers through the murky waters of America's foreign economic policy. The U.S. trade agenda today faces formidable challenges as well as substantial opportunities. This book offers insight into both.
