    Multilateralism and the Multinational Enterprise
    (Cambridge University Press, 2009) Lindeque, Johan Paul; Lawton, Thomas; McGuire, Steven [in: Business and Politics]
    How do multilateral institutions influence the strategic choices and actions of international managers? This paper addresses the question by exploring the impact of the World Trade Organization's (WTO) decision-making process on multinational enterprises (MNEs). We discuss the three phases of the WTO decision-making lifecycle - the formulation of trade rules, the implementation of those rules, and the enforcement of the rules and propose a strategic adjustment framework for understanding how companies alter their strategies and structures in response to the WTO's rules and operations. We argue that the increased relevance of multilateral rules and enforcement mechanisms embodied in the WTO - is an important influence on MNE strategies and structures because of the increasing embeddedness of the WTO in national levels of regulation. We illustrate this through examples taken from the pharmaceutical, textiles and sugar industries sectors that have witnessed substantial multilateral regulation.

    A Firm Perspective of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Cases in the United States of America
    (Springer, 2007) Lindeque, Johan Paul [in: Journal of World Trade]
    The role played by firms in the prosecution of antidumping and countervailing duty cases in the United States of America is understudied. This paper provides greater understanding of the challenges faced by firms during the process of prosecuting antidumping and countervailing duty cases in the United States of America. This is achieved by applying a theoretical model of corporate political activity to data collected through interviews with 24 trade attorneys in Washington DC, practicing in the area of antidumping and countervailing duty law. Antidumping and countervailing duty cases are found to require significant resource commitments from firms in the participating industries, as well as requiring individual firms to make a number of strategic decisions. The value of an affirmative decision and imposition of duties to the domestic and foreign industry is found to be more nuanced than previous studies have suggested. Non-duty effects of AD and CVD cases are also confirmed. Finally a clearer understanding of the role of individual firms in antidumping and countervailing duty cases is shown to have the potential to improve how industry influence is taken account of in future research.

    The United States and Trade Disputes in the World Trade Organization: Hegemony Constrained or Confirmed?
    (Springer, 2007) Lindeque, Johan Paul; McGuire, Steven [in: Management International Review]
    Does the World Trade Organization function to reinforce American dominance (or hegemony) of the world economy? We examine this question via an analysis of trade disputes involving the United States. This allows us to assess whether the US does better than other countries in this judicialised forum: and in so doing enhance the competitive prospects of their firms. The results are equivocal. The United States does best in the early phases of a dispute, where political power is important. It does less well as the process develops.
