When it comes to EU Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) of the post-Lisbon era (for example those being negotiated with the USA, Canada, or Asian Countries), various sources of uncertainties or ambiguities can be observed in their negotiation and implementation. Some of them stem from the legal framework of the EU’s external action provided for by the Lisbon Treaty and interpreted by the Court of Justice, in accordance to which they shall be concluded: in particular the distribution of competences between the EU and its Member States and of powers within the institutions. But some of them arise from the EU’s FTAs themselves. The new goals assigned to FTAs exceed traditional trade issues and now include provisions, such as deep regulatory cooperation issues or investment issues that may impact citizens and local powers more directly. Because of this renewed content and also because of the partners involved, the so-called ‘new-generation FTAs’ have created a great mobilization of actors who are traditionally not greatly involved in the making of the EU(’s) trade policy.

This timely book gives an overview of the main legal issues the EU faces in negotiating, concluding and implementing so-called ‘New Generation’ free trade agreements. Featuring contributions by international specialists on EU external action, this book demonstrates why these FTAs have become challenging for the EU, as well as analysing how the EU has dealt with its institutional constraints, and addresses contemporary debates and future challenges for EU institutions and Member States.
