This book examines the impact of international trade rules on the
promotion and protection of human rights, and explains why human
rights are an important mechanism for assessing the social justice
impact of the international trading system. The core of the book is
an in depth analysis of the various ways in which international
trade law rules impact upon human rights protection and promotion,
emphasising the significance of the jurisdictional context in which
the human rights issues arise: coercive measures that are taken by
one country to protect and promote human rights in another country
are distinguished from measures taken by a country to protect and
promote the human rights of its own population. The author contends
that international trade law rules have utilised certain ad hoc
mechanisms to deal with particularly pressing human rights concerns
in the trade context, but also argues that these mechanisms do not
provide systemic solutions to the inter-linkages between the two
legal systems. The author therefore examines mechanisms by which
human rights arguments could be more systematically raised and
adjudicated upon in WTO dispute settlement proceedings,
highlighting future opportunities and difficulties. He concludes by
considering broader systemic issues outside the dispute settlement
process that need to be addressed if trade law rules are to
successfully protect and promote human rights.
