Microfinance and poverty[ edit ] Financial needs and financial services. In developing economies and particularly in rural areas, many activities that would be classified in the developed world as financial are not monetized:
In one of the most widely followed recent examples, the U. House of Representatives, in a vote, and the U. One of the major causes of its near defeat was the design of its labor provisions, which were deemed to be too weak given the poor record of labor law enforcement and the levels of poverty in CAFTA countries.
In the final vote, the FTA passed the whole Congresswith some key Democrats changing their votes based upon assurances by the Government of Oman that it would amend its collective bargaining laws. Even then, only twenty-two Democrats voted in favor of the agreement.
Much of the disagreement in these debates centers on the question of how effectively trade-related labor rights provisions hold states accountable for their inadequate labor laws or inadequate labor law enforcement. It is so-termed because the IL methodology integrates public and private regulatory approaches in the design and implementation of trade-based labor rights enforcement regimes.
IL moves away from the predominant State Action—State Sanctions Model toward a more nuanced and encompassing approach that utilizes the powerful potential of private regulatory strategies. Rather than conceptualizing public and private regulation as operating in discrete realms that have little overlap, IL aims to create institutions that effectively combine the two in order to achieve a more effective trade and labor rights regime.
Importantly, IL does not necessarily seek as a normative end the deregulation or even decentralization of regulatory authority, but instead actively seeks to bolster public regulatory capacity and improve democratic functioning.
Such an approach is generally applicable, and is relevant not only to the United States and its trading partners in their bilateral and regional trading arrangements, but to other regional free trade areas and their members as well. The structure of this Article is as follows: In Part I, I briefly survey the legal and normative justifications for linking trade agreements and labor standards and describe some principles that ought to guide the construction of labor provisions in trade agreements, taking special note of human rights and development concerns.
I demonstrate that a both in practice and in theory, the predominant approach to linkage has focused on the State and has implicitly adopted a State Action—State Sanctions Model that is particularly ill-suited to developing countries with dysfunctional regulatory regimes; b extant regimes in the three predominant loci of trade and labor linkage have been largely ineffective in improving labor conditions, in part because of their reliance on the State Action—State Sanctions Model; and c despite this ineffectiveness, bilateral and regional agreements hold the most promise for the creation of effective trade and labor regimes.
In Part IV, I examine an enlightening case study of creative linkage in Cambodia in which the market for labor rights compliant clothing has helped improve working conditions and has become a source of competitive advantage for the country.
The Cambodia experiment can be viewed as an early prototype of an IL approach to linkage, and one that some development organizations are looking to as a possible model to follow in other countries.
In this model, bilateral and regional trade agreements would explicitly provide for labor rights enforcement regimes that focus less on evaluating and sanctioning state action and more on firm-level performance and the generation and dissemination of information about those firms. Such regulatory capacity building would be achieved, in part, through the empowerment and participation of relevant stakeholder groups and of civil society.
The varied IL regimes in different trading regions would then provide IL models and best practices to other regional and bilateral arrangements in a process of networked learning…. To read the entire article, including supporting notes, please download the PDF.Learning Objectives.

The description of the integrative linkage most closely matches that of Netcare as the HR function forms part of Netcare’s management team and the linkage between the HRM function and strategic management is dynamic. The goal of BRAINnet is to expand our knowledge on what constitutes healthy development of the brain across all ages and what goes awry when brain disorders occur.
