Summary (Abstract)

Trade policy increasingly intersects with areas of domestic, economic, and social policy in Jordan.1 Therefore, it is vital thatelected representatives’ views influence the direction of international trade negotiations. The role of parliament in the treaty-making process has been the subject of debate in Jordan for several years. Although exact comparison with other countries proves difficult due to different political and constitutional structures, there is a compelling need for Jordan to catch up to other more comparable legislative systems in the area of parliamentary scrutiny of executive treaty-negotiating and treaty-making powers.8
