Abstract: Rules of origin are a crucial market access instrument in the rapidly proliferating network of preferential trade agreements (PTAs) around the world. In this volume, Estevadeordal and Suominen reveal the protectionist impulses behind rules of origin, examine their impacts on international trade and investment, and put forth a succinct policy roadmap for countries around the world to follow in attenuating their negative implications.
