Abstract (Swedish)
The European Union is a large organ that is constantly under reformation. EU and the Common Agricultural Policy has during its lifetime gone through several major reforms in order to adjust regulations for certain markets. Our study will pay focus on the Sugar reform that was implemented in year 2006 and what effects it had on the European sugar market. The purpose of the reform was to give more power to the natural market balance within the strictly regulated European sugar market. We examined the possibility of finding a connection between this reform and change in trade patterns with sugar in the EU. Our expected result was that high-cost producing countries would have stopped producing sugar and instead chosen import. The paper will... (More)

We examined the possibility of finding a connection between this reform and change in trade patterns with sugar in the EU. Our expected result was that high-cost producing countries would have stopped producing sugar and instead chosen import. The paper will initially introduce the Common Agricultural policy of the EU and its history and the former sugar market regulations. By testing different variables we tried to find a clear connection between the reform and change in trade patterns. Through our regressions the paper will present a result. However, we did not manage to find a clear connection in any of our regressions. Hence we also have descriptive statistics in forms of graphs. These graphs help to give a visual understanding of certain effects. Nevertheless, our study was not enough to find out whether it was due to the reform or other variables. (Less)
