Title: Culture and trade: An anlysis of four culture/trade disputes under NAFTA and the WTO
Author: Lyzaniwski, Nancy A.

Abstract: This thesis is an investigation of the treatment of culture in existing international trade agreements. It commences with an examination of trade-culture linkages and the treatment of culture by the Canadian government and by international trade agreements. An examination will follow of specific criteria that determine the course a cultural dispute may follow in order to reach resolution. Case studies of four recent cultural trade disputes are examined in light of those criteria which provide evidence to support the argument for clear rules and policies on how culture should be treated within the realm of international trade. The thesis concludes with a number of options for the future treatment of culture in an effort to avoid further disputes and to provide cultural industries with greater means to decide whether to venture out into the world or to stay at home.
