Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

For the first time, international trade and protection of the environment have been inexorably linked in the context of a formal trading relationship. This article explores the environmental provisions of NAFTA and the Environmental Side Agreement, and provides an analysis of the likely impact of these provisions on related issues of harmonisation, sovereignty and enforcement. It concludes with a commentary on the impact of NAFTA and the Environmental Side Agreement on future Canadian trade relations with other countries, with particular reference to member states of the Caribbean Community.
