Elena's Movie Review Madness

Reviews from my 11-year old mind!

22The third right to environmental justice is perhaps the most difficult procedural law that can be obtained in most countries of the world. Aguirre Franco argues that NAFTA was responsible for the creation of Mexico as the Federal Prosecutor for environmental protection (PROFEPA) in 1992. PROFEPA was created because of the impression of creating modern environmental laws and standards (Aguirre Franco op. cit.: 73-74). PROFEPA is part of the Mexican Ministry of the Environment, known in 2000 as SEMARNAT 31A less than these concerns about the natural resources sector, environmentalists have continued to make slow progress in U.S. free trade agreements. Van Roozendaal attributes the changes to the 2000 U.S.-Jordan Free Trade Agreement to the Trade Act 2007 and the 2007 U.S.-Panama Free Trade Agreement (still not ratified by Congress). The central point of the 2007 legislative acts and the free trade agreements that followed is that they indicate “a postponement of non-binding references to stronger environmental commitments,” as requested by Congress (Van Roozendaal 2009: 431). First, seven specific multilateral environmental agreements were incorporated into all trade agreements from 2007. Second, the language of the FTA no longer distinguishes between countries at different stages of development.

Third, countries are not only obliged to maintain high environmental standards instead of lowering them to attract trade; and fourth, environmental commitments are enforced through remedial measures, procedures and sanctions similar to trade commitments. Environmental offences are no longer limited to fines (op.:436). 16 The U.S. Department of the Environment has moved from an ancillary agreement to the termination of the U.S.-Jordan Free Trade Agreement (2000). 7 Unlike other social scientists, political scientists with institutionalized priorities have generally expressed a positive view of the long-term effects of NAFTA on the environment and the architecture of free trade agreements. What is theoretical focus on institutional acceptance and evolution over time? Over the past two decades, neo-institutionalism has been at the centre of the social sciences, and the key questions about institutions are how they begin, exist and evolve. Many sociologists use “the institution” in the socio-cultural sense to indicate “habits, decision-making styles and social norms” and argue that institutions persist because of a “logic of adequacy”. (March, Olsen: 1989) While for American politicians, environmental concerns are now integrated as a socio-cultural norm in free trade agreements, institutions of a more limited meaning, which is common to political science, are more or less synonymous with “formal organizations”. Seen from this lens, institutions emerge as a more conscious product of human design, as is the case for the creation of environmental mechanisms in free trade agreements.

In accordance with Article II of the Constitution, the President has the power to negotiate with abroad. If President Trump decides to renegotiate NAFTA, implementation of the renegotiated agreement in domestic law would likely take one of two forms, depending on the purpose of the negotiations: proclamation of the President85 or, if the renegotiations are likely to lead to changes in U.S. law, the President would likely seek to expedite the processing of implementing laws under the 2015 Bipartisan Trade Promotion and Accountability Act (TPA).
