Abstract

This review essay in Human Rights and Human Welfare riffs on Emily Hafner Burton's new book on trade and human rights to examine the relationship in trade agreements. I argue these links are increasingly binding and a growing number of countries adopt, require, and accept them.

Keywords: Trade, Human Rights, FTA, WTO, Human Welfare, EU, US, Canada
