OUVRAGE : S. Joseph, D. Kinley, J. Waincymer (eds), The World Trade Organization and Human Rights

Catherine MAIA
This collection of essays from leading academics examines the connection between the World Trade Organization (WTO) and human rights issues, a topic which has provoked significant debate, particularly in the decade since the collapsed WTO talks in Seattle in 1999.
The editors argue that a true appreciation of the salient issues requires consideration of disciplines beyond the law, such as economics, political science and philosophy. This book builds on previous trade/human rights projects by adding that interdisciplinary dimension.
Bringing together trade scholars and human rights scholars from legal and interdisciplinary perspectives, The World Trade Organization and Human Rights will be an invaluable research tool for international scholars in human rights and trade, NGOs in the development sector and human rights, trade organizations and trade practitioners.
