Horizontal Human Rights Law                                         John H, Knox         1
Human rights have traditionally been seen as vertical, establishing rights for indi-
viduals and obligations for states. Recent proposals seek to reorient human rights
law horizontally, imposing obligations directly on corporations and other pri-
vate actors. These proposals fail to appreciate the horizontal effects of existing
human rights law, and risk undermining its structure and opening the door to
new restrictions on human rights.
Nondiscrimination in Trade and Investment Treaties: Worlds Apart or Two Sides
of the Same Coin?                            Nicholas DiMascio &JoostPauwelyn        48
International trade and investment treaties both use national treatment provisions to
prohibit discrimination against foreigners, but do so for different reasons. As disputes
increasingly cross the boundary between trade and investment, the origin, evolution,
and goals of the treaties require somewhat different applications of national treat-
ment. At its core, however, national treatment prohibits only discrimination based
on nationality, so in both contexts proof of a legitimate policy objective should vin-
dicate a domestic law against a charge of discrimination.
