This chapter examines trade and human rights issues in relation to the view that regional trade agreements (RTA) and the World Trade Organization (WTO) are competing fora for constitutional reforms. It examines the relevance of non-economic objectives and the human rights obligations of all WTO Members for RTA and WTO law. It concludes that WTO rules and RTA should be seen as competing fora not only for trade liberalization, also for constitutional reforms inside trading countries.

Keywords:   trade, human rights, regional trade agreements, WTO, constitutional reforms, trade liberalization
