English summary: This 'liber amicorum' for Peter Schlosser contains contributions written by internationally well-known specialists in the field of international civil procedure and arbitration. The articles concentrate on controversial issues such as transborder cooperation, international jurisdiction, enforcement of foreign judgements and arbitral awards, especially in regard to European legislation and international conventions. They focus on very delicate subject matters such as neutrality of arbitrators, taking evidence abroad and the limits of national sovereignty. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage sind zwei wesentlichen Arbeitsgebieten des Jubilars gewidmet, dem internationalen Verfahrensrecht und der Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Aus diesen Bereichen werden aktuelle und grundsatzliche Probleme von weltweit anerkannten Spezialisten diskutiert. Im Vordergrund stehen die Probleme grenzuberschreitender Sachverhalte bei der Rechtsdurchsetzung, sei es im Bereich der staatlichen Gerichtsbarkeit, sei es in der alternativen Streitbeilegung, insbesondere der internationalen Schiedsgerichtsbarkeit. Die Thematik gewinnt durch die Europaische Rechtsetzungskompetenz und Gesetzgebung neben den internationalen Konventionen, insbesondere den Bemuhungen der Haager Konferenz um einheitliche Regelungen fur transnationale Probleme, neue Dimensionen. Themen wie der neue Europaische Vollstreckungstitel uber unbestrittene Forderungen, die besonderen Probleme der Brussel II a-Verordnung, der Entwurf eines Haager Ubereinkommens uber die Gerichtsstandswahl stehen neben Grundsatzfragen wie Armut der Schiedspartei, Neutralitat des Schiedsrichters, Anerkennungsproblemen bei einer Scheidung nach judischem Recht und Fragen aus dem Bereich des europaisch-amerikanischen Justizkonflikts. Die Beitrage spiegeln die internationale Diskussion in aktuellen und sensiblen Bereichen des internationalen Verfahrensrechts im weitesten Sinne.

A Path Forward for NAFTA

The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) ranks at the top of anyone’s list of the most controversial trade deals of all time. Reviled by critics as unfair and as a job destroyer, praised by its defenders as having a documented record of success in spurring economic growth, NAFTA reduced tariff barriers to zero for the United States, Mexico, and Canada and led to a tripling of trade among these three countries over the last 23 years. The Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) has abundantly detailed the many gains and acknowledged costs of NAFTA in numerous publications. Now that President Donald Trump has launched a renegotiation of NAFTA—having at least for the moment abandoned his 2016 campaign pledge to cancel the pact outright—the fundamental question is: Can such a renegotiation produce a positive result? A broad range of experts who have contributed to this PIIE Briefing say “yes.” The new negotiations can succeed only if they focus on how the agreement can be updated and upgraded, however. NAFTA can be modernized only if President Trump’s zero-sum “America First” agenda is replaced by one that seeks to benefit all three countries and improve their competitiveness in an increasingly competitive global economy. Prioritizing American interests is of course essential in any US trade negotiation. But an obsessive concern about bilateral trade balances and narrow special interests in the United States, as opposed to broader national and regional interests, would not only deadlock the negotiations but also likely lead to inferior outcomes for all three countries, or even a breakdown in the talks and an abrogation of the agreement. And walking away from NAFTA altogether would be disastrous for consumers, producers, and retailers in the United States. As argued in several chapters of this Briefing, abandoning NAFTA would degrade regional competitiveness and terminate jobs across North America, undoing the integration achieved since the agreement’s inception.
