Errol P. Mendes is a lawyer, author, professor and adviser to NGOs, corporations, government and the United Nations. His teaching, research and consulting interests include corporate law and governance, global governance, international business and trade law, constitutional law, international law (including anti-terrorism laws and policies) and human rights law and policy.

Title and summary of communication :

Using the WTO to promote harmonization and co-ordination of trade and labour standards agreements. The U.S., Canada and to a lesser extent the EU, Chile and New Zealand are developing increasing effective agreements that link trade and labour standards. However, there is concern about how to promote harmonization and co-ordination of such agreements. The presentation will suggest that this attempt at harmonization and coordination should take place in the Trade Policy Review Mechanism (TPRM) established within the WTO institutional structure.
