Grain Subsidies in Ukraine is the first attempt to examine impact of international trade law on Ukrainian policies in the cereals sector. The author focuses on instruments of state support for agricultural producers. Those are examined in their compliance with Ukraine's WTO commitments. The other central component of the book is the effect of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement on the the country's policy space. The treaty contains legal approximation provisions, which may have a farreaching impact on Ukrainian agricultural regulation. In this regard, the agreement is compared to other free trade agreements signed by Ukraine. Another focal point is the question to what extent Ukraine could make use of the EU agricultural aid practice. Although certain EU experience is found to be useful, the book generally advocates reducing distortive policies in Ukraine by substituting subsidies with market-based instruments.
Based on author's thesis (doctoral - Universität Bremen, 2016) issued under title: Grain Policies and the Challenge of External Trade Liberalization: on the Example of the European Union and Ukraine.
