About the Author

Sarah Joseph is a Professor of Human Rights Law, and the Director of the Castan Centre for Human Rights Law at Monash University in Melbourne. She has numerous publications on human rights, in areas such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, corporations and human rights, terrorism and human rights, self-determination, and now global trade and human rights. She is also an expert on Australian constitutional law, having co-written a leading text on that issue. She has taught human rights in many settings, both international and local, for over 15 years.


[A]nyone interested in the interplay between the WTO and human rights would do well to consult this very eloquently written text. * Md. Rizwanul Islam, Journal of World Trade *
Joseph succeeds in offering a book that serves to educate human rights lawyers and trade lawyers about each other's respective field. She takes great pains to offer a balanced view, open to both the positive and negative influences from the WTO on international human rights as a matter of law as well as practice. For those interested in examining the impact of the WTO on human rights, this is a very good starting point. * Gregory Messenger, European Human Rights Law Review *
This is an intriguing and immaculately well-presented book that deals with a controversial topic that is frequently either totally ignored or given very little attention...this fine book will go some way to providing some positive and productive discussion which can lead to some important reforms. * Andrew Campbell, International Journal of Human Rights *
This is a very interesting and scholarly work that systematically and thoroughly analyses the validity of the main human rights concerns regarding the law and practice created by the World Trade Organisation (WTO), its underlying free trade theory as well as the (not always compliant) practice of its members. * Polona Florijancic, International Human Rights Law Review *
