The political economy of agricultural protection (PEAP) literature has progressed along two distinct paradigms of the interactions among economic agents: the self-will government (SWG) models and the clearing house government (CHG) models. This study treats the two approaches as complementary, as it investigates the primary determinants of agricultural protection across industrialized and developing countries.
