Although in some ways the GSP can be interpreted as a long term strategy to redress inequitable resource distributions in order to make trade more efficient, concern for welfare in developing countries seems to be the major rationale. Here, rules that have come to be associated with the South preferential trade regime (see Chapter 3) have penetrated the post World War II liberal trade regime. Rules and Codifications The articles of the GATT, as well as the later agreements signed by GATT members, contain the most formalized rules of all the regimes I identify.

Keeley (1990) discusses the potential malign characteristics of regimes by analyzing how regimes control power and knowledge, an approach that borrows from the work of Michel Foucault. 14. Rosenau (1990) uses the term, turbulence, differently. 15. See Bachrach and Baratz (1970) on non-decisions in the policy making process; Olson (1971) on interest groups and their political power. 16. Prior to the Treaty of Westphalia, the rules governing the identity of the units of the international (European) system and their behavior were different.

This intentional redundancy emphasizes how the rules overlap. I have interpreted the principles, norms, rules, and procedures of each regime from documents that codify them. These documents are distinct from those that I use to provide data on trade problems. Extracting rules from documents and not from observed practices allows me to avoid the tautology of inferring the existence of a regime from behavior and then arguing that regimes order the behavior, a common error pointed out by Haggard and Simmons (1987).
