Abstract

The impact of international trade on the environment, health, labour and human rights has for some time now occupied the centre stage in academic, diplomatic and other international discussions. Human rights, health, the environment and labour rights impinge directly on human welfare. Employing the twin concepts of a rights-based approach to development and sustainable development, this article argues for these concerns to be made an integral part of international trade law policy design and implementation, both at the national and international levels. Trade rules should have as its ultimate and foremost aim the promotion of human welfare.
