This agreement defines the scope, functions and structure of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The agreements previously negotiated under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), as well as the Uruguay Round agreements, have been incorporated as integral parts of the Marrakesh Agreement and have been incorporated into its annexes. These agreements are now considered WTO agreements. (42) The death of the neoliberal “Washington Consensus” has been heralded by many since the onset of the global financial crisis at the end of 2008. On 2 April 2009.B, at the end of the G20 summit, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (at the time) declared the “old Washington consensus”: see www.number10.gov.uk/Page18934, which was called on 22 April 2009. Of course, it remains to be seen whether such proclamations are premature. In this paper, I have tried to show that the question of whether GATT should have a direct effect is very complex. The GATT is a constitutional agreement like the treaty. However, it has different economic objectives than the treaty. THE GATT is also an international agreement. However, it creates a different regulatory structure than that established in the other international conventions of the Community. Although the Marrakesh agreement itself does not apply directly to your business, the WTO agreements offer, in their annexes, a comprehensive set of rules aimed at facilitating competition in the current global market. The full text of all WTO agreements, including those concluded since the wto`s inception, is contained in the TARA database on negotiations and compliance with U.S.
Department of Commerce trade agreements. It is hoped that this book will achieve its purpose of explaining why the WTO is being criticised from a human rights perspective, and that many, if not all, complaints are indeed valid. The WTO is not the demonic organization presented by some of its loudest critics66.66 In some areas, such as the protection of agriculture in the North, the WTO is perhaps less culpable than international financial institutions in promoting unfair rules67, although it can be criticized enough for not doing much to correct this injustice. Some of its rules can sometimes contribute to the defence of human rights.68 Finally, some trade issues lead to complex human rights issues that, admittedly, are not easy to resolve. For example, the strict interpretation of the SPS agreement has been criticized for hampering the ability of states to protect the health of their populations, as evidenced by the bovine hormone dispute. However, overly stringent SPS standards, perhaps embodied by the EU standard for aflatoxins in nuts and cereals, can have devastating effects on the livelihoods of some of the world`s poorest people69.
