Chapter Summary

This chapter starts from the recognition that the promotion of sustainable development is the explicit object and purpose of many binding treaties negotiated by Canada, and by the UK in its capacity as a member of the European Union. Both Canada and the UK have committed to address sustainable development in their trade policies and practices. Canadian and UK/European Union (EU) sustainable development strategies have made their way into the negotiation procedures and the texts of actual trade treaties agreed by Canada and the European Communities (for the UK) in several ways. Both Canada and the UK are also part of the World Trade Organisation (WTO), a global trade liberalization process which has shed some light on the meaning of sustainable development in international trade law. Canada and the EU have agreed to design a new type of wide-ranging bilateral Trade and Investment Enhancement Agreement (TIEA).

Keywords: Canada; European Union (EU); international trade law; Trade and Investment Enhancement Agreement (TIEA).; UK; World Trade Organization (WTO)
