This book discusses human rights problems that arise from international trade and outlines specific paths that governments must follow to use trade for the advancement of human rights. Drawing on actual examples from the thirty-five nations of the Western Hemisphere, it explores human rights policies involving poverty, sustainable development, conscripted child labor, health promotion, equality of women, human trafficking, indigenous peoples, citizenship, and economic sanctions. It also examines the premises of the trade and human rights debate from the perspectives of both free trade advocates and human rights activists, and how each is—or should be—attempting to avoid a clash that could have profound consequences for human rights and the global market.

Keywords:   human rights, human rights policies, poverty, sustainable development, human trafficking, indigenous peoples, citizenship, economic sanctions, free trade, international trade
