Beyond Trade: How deep trade agreements shape non-trade outcomes
eBook, June 2023
Trade agreements increasingly include disciplines aimed at achieving non-trade objectives: promoting FDI, technology transfers, workers’ movements, but also improving labor conditions, environmental quality and achieving other broader social goals. This eBook brings together a group of leading economists to investigate the economic rationale for including nontrade
objectives in trade agreements and whether these disciplines actually achieve their intended goals.
