STIA-361 Reconciling Trade, Environment, and Development Policies
Over the past ten years, international trade policy and its institutions have taken on the additional responsibilities of protecting the environment and promoting development among the world's poorest people. Why did this come about? How effective are the efforts to reconcile these important policy areas? Students will first develop an understanding of the linkages between trade, environment, and development policies. We will then examine some of the more important efforts to link these policies together, including the North American Free Trade Agreement, the World Trade Organization's "Development Round," and a host of bi-lateral and regional agreements involving the United States, Canada, Chile, Central America, Singapore, and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.
