This study is intended to provide readers with a comprehensive overview of issues surrounding multilateral trade negotiations under WTO and FTAA, including trade policies and implementation mechanisms, repercussions for individuals and communities, and challenges facing the cultural sector. Examining the issue of cultural security, for example, the authors contend that the double threat posed by WTO-GATS and the FTAA agreement will leave Canada’s cultural security and diversity vulnerable to new attacks.
