Zusammenfassung

The environmental implications of international trade appear to be associated with public backlash against trade liberalization and efforts at greening international trade. Because public support is essential to environmental and trade policy-making alike, we examine the trade–environment nexus from a public opinion perspective. We investigate whether negative attitudes toward trade are in fact fueled by concern over its environmental consequences. We argue that environmental concern affects how citizens evaluate the costs and benefits of trade, and that such evaluation is moderated by political ideology. The empirical analysis relies on a large representative survey and a population-based survey experiment in Switzerland, a small open economy. We show that environmental concern leads to decreasing appreciation of and support for international trade, with different manifestations of trade skepticism on the political left and right. This suggests (i) that policy-makers should focus more on greening global supply chains, and thus trade, if they wish to sustain public support for liberal international trade policy; and (ii) that the public follows informational cues on the environmental impacts of trade.

Zusammenfassung in einer weiteren Sprache

Les implications environnementales du commerce international semblent être associées à une réaction publique contre la libéralisation du commerce et à des efforts visant à écologiser le commerce international. Le soutien du public étant essentiel à l’élaboration des politiques environnementales et commerciales, nous examinons la relation entre commerce et environnement du point de vue de l'opinion publique. Nous cherchons à savoir si les attitudes négatives envers le commerce international sont alimentées par des préoccupations liées à ses conséquences environnementales. Nous soutenons que les préoccupations environnementales affectent la manière dont les citoyens évaluent les coûts et bénéfices du commerce et que cette évaluation est modérée par l'idéologie politique. Notre analyse empirique se base sur une grande enquête représentative et sur une expérience intégrée dans un sondage en Suisse, une petite économie ouverte. Nous montrons que les préoccupations environnementales entraînent une diminution de l'appréciation et du soutien au commerce international, avec différentes manifestations du scepticisme à l’égard du commerce à gauche et à droite de l’échiquier politique. Cela suggère (i) que les décideurs politiques devraient se concentrer davantage sur l’écologisation des chaînes d'approvisionnement mondiales, et donc du commerce, s'ils souhaitent conserver un soutien du public à une politique libérale du commerce international, et (ii) que le public suit les signaux d'information sur les impacts environnementaux du commerce.
