Overview

The rapid liberalization of international trade and investment, and the growing importance of environmental protection, are two key elements of international relations in the modern world. Yet the two regimes often clash, as recent disputes in the WTO and arguments over the OECD's proposed Multilateral Agreement on Investment, have shown. In this book, leading international authorities set out the trade, investment, and environment agenda as the Millennium Round of trade negotiations approaches. Topics covered include building markets for sustainable trade; environmental treaties and trade; environmental regulation, finance, and transnational corporations; environmental regulation and international investment (including an analysis of the collapse of the MAI talks); conflict resolution in the WTO (including the important implications of the shrimp-turtle dispute); and a wide-ranging discussion on the future of the trade/investment/environment debate. Not available through Brookings in the UK and Europe
