This chapter outlines visions and solutions aimed at bridging the divides between trade and human rights. It first considers the contradictions as well as the synchronicity between international human rights law and international trade law and goes on to emphasize the need for trade agreements and their interpretation to take account of human rights. It then discusses the place of human rights law in World Trade Organization (WTO) rules, the human rights aspect of regional trade agreements, and how fundamental human rights can be incorporated into trade agreements. It also suggests ways of ending trade's splendid isolation from human rights and examines reparations for human rights violations based on the Global Harm Principle and the principle of pacta sunt servanda.

Keywords:   human rights, international human rights law, international trade, international trade law, World Trade Organization, regional trade agreements, reparations, human rights violations, Global Harm Principle, pacta sunt servanda
