Hiscox (2002) has focused on trade cleavages in six Western economies since the 1920s by examining the effects of such cleavages on the behaviour of political parties and the lobbying efforts of major industry groups. Hiscox comes to the conclusion that when levels of factor mobility are relatively high broad-class conflict is more likely and when levels of mobility are low narrow industry-based conflict is more likely. Following the grand tradition of Schattschneider (1935), other scholars have highlighted that since gains from freer trade are diffuse (spread throughout society) and costs are concentrated in a well-organized group, interest group pressures are biased towards those who lose from trade liberalization (Bailey, Goldstein, and Weingast, 1997; Evans, Jacobson, and Putnam, 1993; Moravcsik, 1993).

The time dimension intervenes in several ways in a bargaining process. The elapse of time might lead to a decline in demands over time. Pruitt and Latané Drews (1969) point out that time pressure has positive effects on the likelihood that an agreement will be achieved. 9 Time pressure is expected to occur whenever a deadline is close and thus bargaining parties know that the amount of time available to negotiate is limited. The following hypothesis on time pressure will be tested: H4: Actors that are under greater time pressure will produce a softer approach to negotiations, involving a lower level of demands and larger concessions.

Research and theorizing on this topic are still in their infancy. Or, as Milner (2002) states, the debate over the impact of the political system on trade policy has just begun. For this reason we need to move more towards an international comparative perspective. Domestic institutions Scholars often invoke the concept of domestic institutions without clearly defining it. In International Relations literature, ‘institution’ is a fuzzy concept, often discussed without being defined at all (Keohane, 1989).
