Abstract

This article aims to contribute to the dialogue over trade and environment in the Americas by providing a spatial analysis of the CEC's citizen submissions process. Part II begins by introducing the underlying geography of the CEC. Part III maps the factual records prepared to date and explores the state-corporate regulatory dynamic that infuses them. Part IV considers the implications of this geography for improving the effectiveness of the citizen submissions process. The article concludes by arguing for further analysis of place-based relationships in trade and environment disputes.
