Created from NAFTA: The Structure, Function, and Significance of the Treaty's Related Institutions
The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) involved much more than simple trade barrier reduction--it broke new ground in such areas as investment regulation and intellectual property protection, and, for the first time, linked labor and environmental issues to international trade policy. In addition, NAFTA brought together, in an economic integration scheme, countries with widely disparate levels of economic development.
Implementation of this broad-based agreement required the creation of several new institutions: some were mandated by the treaty itself, others came about as a result of supplemental labor and environmental legislation; and a few have been created in response to the increased economic activity among the three member countries since the NAFTA agreement went into effect.
Created from NAFTA provides, for the first time, an in-depth examination and analysis of the structure, functions, and performance of the NAFTA institutions from their inception to the present day.
