Speakers will discuss the new types of human rights commitments as they compare to prior efforts, the effectiveness of mechanisms to bind and enforce measures of protection, and the desirability of implementing such commitments for promoting human rights in other types of free trade agreements that include multiple partners, such as the one the US is currently negotiating.
