Possible tools for strengthened implementation of sustainable development provisions in FTA´s

This analysis proposes a range of practical and easily applicable mechanisms which can be included in EU FTAs with an aim of strengthening the implementation of sustainability provisions, and responding to some of the criticism expressed in the course of the TSD implementation debate.

The main objective of this analysis is to develop a set of possible tools to be included in EU FTAs in order to improve implementation and enforcement of their sustainable development provisions. This analysis is a follow up to the 2016 report by the National Board of Trade, and is based on its main findings.
