The International and Domestic Sources of Transatlantic Cooperation in Competition Policy

  • Chad Damro
Part of the International Political Economy Series book series (IPES)


This chapter develops a theoretical argument that incorporates international and domestic sources to explain transatlantic cooperation in competition policy. Traditional systemic explanations of international cooperation can provide only incomplete and unsatisfactory accounts of such behaviour. The argument developed in this chapter employs a cross-level analysis that incorporates economic internationalization at the systemic level and institutions and actors at the domestic level in order to explain more clearly the discretionary nature and processes of EU-US cooperation.
