Trade Blocs, Trade Flows, and International Conflict
AbstractThe relationship between foreign trade and political conflict hasbeen a persistent source of controversy among scholars of internationalrelations. For centuries, commercial liberals have claimed that opentrade inhibits hostilities. For just as long, observers have challengedthe liberal position, arguing that unfettered commerce often contributesto belligerence or that trade is unrelated to interstate disputes.Recently, various empirical studies have attempted to resolve thesedebates by analyzing the effects of trade flows on conflict. Thesestudies, however, have largely ignored the institutional context inwhich trade is conducted.
