"Global Trade and Global Social Issues" challenges seeks a new understanding of the relationship between world trade and social issues. The authors examine ways in which we choose to understand world trade and the changes taking place within the industry. In the book, several points of view are presented by leading academics and NGO workers to offer a much-needed counterweight to the liberal consensus.

Trade in context: approaches to globalisation
Trading human rights
Trade with a female face: women and the new international trade agenda
The trade and environment debate
Calls for a social trade
The WTO and issues associated with TRIPS and agrobiotechnology
New values and international organisations: balancing trade and environment in NAFTA
The World Trade Organisation, social movements and 'democracy'
Managing trade in a globalizing world: trade in public services and transnational corporations - the case of the global water industry
The World Trade Organisation: technocracy or banana republic?
The global production of trade and social movements: value, regulation, effective demand and needs
