Global trade allows countries to access products and services not produced locally. In some instances, Since trading occurs among countries that do not have matching values and cultures, involvingtrade regulatory bodies is critical. Bilateral agreements have increasingly led to violation of human rights, given that they are enacted quickly without availing some terms and conditions to the civil society. Although trade agreements emphasize business than infringement of basic human rights concerns, countries should consider the interests of the public.
The rights of consumers and workers are greatly affected by global trade. For instance, some countries, mostly developing, oblige to the trade agreements even without identifying underlying adverse effects. A country could be mistreating the workers by prohibiting them from joining labor unions, which should protect employees from mistreatment.. Hence, the production system may become unsustainable if it fails to protect workers from diseases and injuries. Besides, the consumers can also become affected by substandard products, compromising the quality of their life, while on the other hand, reducing the market opportunities. Overall when the rights both workers and consumers are violated, the long-term involvement with the country is not assured.
Countries that do not enforce human rights promote economic and political instability. If people with less disposable income are mistreated, they become aggressive against such an administration. Such conflicts may lead to institutional policies that are aimed to suppress m rather than improving people’s welfare. Overall, trading with such countries promotes further oppression and only serves the interests of the administration.
