Abstract:Deep Integration (DI), defined as the abolishment of 'behind the border' trade restrictions, has been a major focus of activity within the European Union. More recently, Deep Integration has also been included in the negotiations of new bilateral and regional trade agreements. This article chooses the current EU-South Africa negotiations as a case study and argues that these tendencies may become a dangerous restriction for the economic policy space of the South African government. The article discusses selected issues of Deep Integration projects, in particular corporate governance and competition policies, with a 'comparative capitalism' framework as the analytical backdrop.
