  • Identifies issues facing policy makers on both sides of the issues
  • Proposes a regulatory strategy to overcome the challenge
  • Adopts an interdisciplinary approach, covering economic, political, sociological and legal factors
Genetically modified (GM) agricultural crops which are approved as safe in North America (Canada and the United States) are facing significant regulatory hurdles in gaining access to the European Union. The development and commercialization of GM crops illustrate a complex challenge facing trade diplomacy - the challenge of regulatory regionalism created by social regulatory barriers.
