ABSTRACT
The author discusses the intersection of the general agreement on tariffs and World Trade Organization's (WTO) Article XX(b) and labor rights of children. He insists that China needs to be more accountable for child labor and that the U.S. can no longer promote the behavior indirectly by buying products using child labor. It compares the counterarguments for authorizing jurisdiction over children, who live outside the member state's border when their use in labor violates children's rights.
