Abstract: A growing body of literature argues that democratization in developing countries leads to an increase in trade liberalization. According to these theories, democratization enfranchises the working class, and workers then use their votes to demand free trade. In direct contrast to extant theories, this paper makes two interventions. First, it argues that workers and other domestic constituencies in developing countries often fiercely oppose trade liberalization. Second, it argues that these oppositional demands are most likely to influence government policy when workers not only have the right to vote, but the rights to act collectively, as well. Together, these two points suggest that trade liberalization in developing countries was not caused by the domestic demands of workers. Third, it argues that the trade liberalization in developing countries is better understood as the result of systematic external from the United States.
To test this argument, this paper uses a new dataset based on the US' annual National Trade Estimate reports, which describe foreign trade policy that the US seeks to alter. In support of my argument, this paper presents the results of quantitative analysis of data from over 100 developing countries from 1981 to 2010.
