This chapter identifies emerging issues in international sustainable development law, primarily from recent developments in international economic law. Different economic instruments at global and regional levels integrate economic law with environmental and social provisions. For example, while the proposed International Trade Organization was designed to integrate social and economic policy in one treaty instrument, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) was provisionally enacted and thought to be limited to trade issues. However the GATT's agenda was soon expanded into neighbouring economic issues, such as trade-related investment measures, and at Doha, Qatar, governments launched international negotiations in the World Trade Organization which reach far beyond a “trade only” agenda into important social and environmental issues. This chapter provides a survey of a new sustainable development law research agenda in this area.
