Abstract

This article examines how the WTO can encourage member states to prod multinationals to ensure that as they stimulate trade, they do not undermine internationally accepted norms for labor, human rights and the environment. The article shows how these issues are seeping into WTO deliberations and how increasingly member states (including Norway, Brazil, Costa Rica and Colombia) use standards or procurement policies to incentivize responsible business practices.
