All hype or maybe some light? May 14 ILO Conference on New Ideas on incorporating labor and human development issues in Free Trade Agreements

The draft agenda is out for the May 14 Conference Working for All? New Ideas and Innovative Strategies to Enhance Economic and Social Benefits in Trade Agreements, co-hosted by the International Labor Organization and George Washington University in Washington, DC.  Speakers include a number of thought leaders and policy makers in the subject area.  Will it all be hype and more of the same ideas everyone has had for the last two decades?  Or will there be genuine dialogue leading to transformative ideas for future policy development and action?  Don't forget to register - and if you can't attend, tune in here for analysis and response.
