Freitag 15. Januar 2010 von htm

The trade and human rights communities distrust each other, but “human rights and trade rules, including WTO rules, are based on the same values: individual freedom and responsibility, non-discrimination, rule of law, and welfare through peaceful cooperation among individuals,” Director-General Pascal Lamy told a colloquium on human rights in the global economy, in Geneva, on 13 January 2010. This is what he said:
“Towards Shared Responsibility and Greater Coherence: Human Rights, Trade and Macroeconomic Policy”
Colloquium on Human Rights in the Global Economy, Co-organized by the International Council on Human Rights and Realizing Rights. (Source: WTO NEWS: SPEECHES, 1/13/10)
