The Future of Labor Rights in Trade Agreements
- Alvaro Santos Professor, Georgetown University Law Center
Santos will be presenting his latest work, “Lessons from the TPP and the Future of Labor Chapters in Trade Agreements”. His piece uses the failure of the Trans-Pacific Partnership to think through the merits of traditional “trade-labor” linkages, and explores various ways to “retool” the global economic regime to address broader distributive concerns and ameliorate the ill-effects of trade liberalization on labor, such as job losses and wage declines.
