Summary/Abstract "This book first examines the theoretical framework of the interaction between the disciplines of international trade law and human rights. The book continues the now famous debate between construing trade obligations as human rights, and the merger and acquisition of human rights by trade law. From this starting point, further chapters explore the differing legal matrices of the two fields and examine how cooperation between them might be improved, both in international law-making and institutions, and in dispute settlement." "The interaction between trade and human rights is then explored through seven case studies: freedom of expression and competition law; Intellectual Property protection and health; agricultural trade and the right to food; trade restrictions on conflict diamonds; UN norms on trans-national corporations; the new WHO convention on tobacco control; and, finally, human rights conditionalities in preferential trade schemes."--BOOK JACKET
