(p.125) 7 Human Rights, Labor Rights, and Trade Policy
Who's Afraid of the WTO?

Kent Jones

Oxford University Press

This chapter offers a review of human rights and labor rights and the possible roles of trade and trade policy in promoting them. It concluded that the WTO has neither the design, the capacity, nor the resources to monitor either human rights or workers' rights in its regulation and trade policies. Countries must find common ground on the underlying principles of human rights, workers' rights, and the measures that are acceptable to promote them and defend them.
