Should Trade Agreements Include Environmental Policy?

Author

  • Josh Ederington

Abstract

This article examines the extent to which environmental and trade policies should be treated equally, or symmetrically, in international negotiations. It reviews the recent economics literature on trade and the environment to address two questions. First, should trade negotiations include negotiations over environmental policies and the setting of binding environmental standards? Second, if there are grounds for international environmental negotiations, should environmental agreements be explicitly linked to existing trade agreements in the world trading system?
