The creation of the Single Market is changing the direction of trade in the European Union (EU) as member countries become more closely integrated. This has major implications for trade with the rest of the world and thus the evolution of EU trade policy. Presents empirical evidence to show that the EU became more protectionist during the 1980s, particularly in the sphere of non‐tariff barriers. Discusses a detailed analysis of the factors presently shaping EU trading policy and assesses whether a “fortress Europe” will develop.
