Trade and Human Rights
AbstractThe paper analyzes the moral, philosophiacal and economic arguments for and against linking trade and human rights. It finds that while claims of universality of labour standards are overblown, addressing the legitimate concerns that citizens of one country may have about what they deem "poor" conditions of work or "exploitation" of children by parents or employers in other countries does not require the use of trade sanctions.
