Title: An Analysis of the Relative Effectiveness of Social and Environmental Norms in Free Trade Agreements
Abstract
While Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) of both, the United States and the European Union, include labor issues in specific chapters, only US FTAs explicitly have “labor chapters,” while the EU FTAs have a general reference to labor rights through the human rights clause and otherwise refer to labor issues in chapters on “social aspects”. Clearly, the US prioritizes labour issues over general human rights or social concerns, while the EU has a broader focus, embracing human rights and sustainable development issues. Based on congressional and civil society pressure, the US also provides clear avenues for sanctions, making labor issues actionable under regular dispute settlement processes. In contrast, the EU adopts a more nuanced approach, signalling a preference against sanctions and for dialogue and capacitybuilding. The EU social chapters are not enforceable. However, even though US labour provisions are more focused and subject to regular dispute settlement processes, the language of these respective paragraphs used to be rather vague. In addition, avoiding enforcement through sanctions is clearly also the preference of subsequent US administrations, and thus, in the end the enforcement performance of the two is not very different.

Title: An assessment of the EU-Korea free trade agreement
Abstract
The free trade agreement negotiated between the EU and the Republic of Korea (EU-Korea FTA or the Agreement) is far-reaching. In terms of the scope of tariff liberalisation it goes beyond anything the EU has agreed in previous agreements. The coverage of services is also ambitious. In a range of other measures, such as the treatment of technical barriers to trade, protection of intellectual property rights including geographic indicators, as well as provisions on dispute settlement and sustainable development the Agreement breaks new ground. It therefore represents forward movement on trade at a time when multilateral negotiations in the Doha Development Agenda (DDA) continue to stagnate and international trade needs of promoting in the wake of the financial crises induced slow down [European Parliament]

Title (other): Assessment of economic benefits generated by the EU Trade Regimes towards developing countries : Volume II ; Export
Performance and Poverty Reduction
Abstract
The report consists of four distinct parts, which provide a description and a quantitative assessment of the impact of preferential access schemes on the growth and diversification of exports from developing countries to the EU over time. Each part of the report can be read individually. The report is organised as follows:Part I: Mapping of trade and FDI flows between the EU and developing countries. This part consists of descriptive analysis of the evolution of exports from developing countries to the EU over the last 40 years across trade regimes, regions and sectors as well as a descriptive analysis of FDI flows.Part II: Changes in EU trade policy regimes and developing countries’ export performance. This part contains a causal econometric analysis of the effect of GSP preferences on the growth of exports from developing countries to the EU.Part III: EU trade regimes and economic diversification. This part comprises a causal econometric analysis of the effect of GSP preferences on the number of products exported from developing countries to the EU.Part IV: Export performance and poverty reduction. This part contains an assessment of the impacts of exporting on poverty reduction in developing countries, based on a literature review and an econometric cross-country analysis.[Author vide copyright]
