Case 107 - U.S. Negotiation of Voluntary Restraint Agreement in Steel, 1984: Domestic Sources of International Economic Diplomacy
Walters, Robert S.
This case study examines the efforts of U.S. trade officials and representatives of the steel industry to deal with foreign steel imports into the United States. It illustrates the complexity of devising and adjusting negotiating positions in the face of competing domestic interests and conflicting international obligations, and analyzes international trade negotiation as a two-level game.
