2005 Center for Global Trade and Development Symposium
International Law Confronts the Global Economy: Labor Rights, Human Rights, and Democracy in Distress.
In February 2005, the Center held a two-day conference on International Law and the Global Economy entitled International Law Confronts the Global Economy: Labor Rights, Human Rights, and Democracy in Distress. It brought together leading scholars from around the world to discuss the impact of globalization on democracy and the rule of law, with particular emphasis on human rights, workers' rights, and the environment.
The conference papers were published as a symposium issue in vol. 8 of the Chapman Law Review (2005).
