Description - Reconciling Environment and Trade by Edith Brown Weiss

Much of the research presented and analysed in this book is made available here for the first time, and much of it is startling. The book focuses on five cases, four of them actual GATT/WTO cases, the fifth sure to be a case in the very near future. The subject matter of these cases reflects five basic issues in the clash between trade and the environment: pub-lic health, air pollution/ozone depletion, food safety, destruction of endangered species, and biosafety. These five issues surface dramatically in unresolved international disputes over tobacco, reformulated gasoline, beef growth hormones, commercial fishing methods, and genetically modified organisms. The authors take into account the entire disciplines of both trade law and environmental law, noting especially the points of friction between the multilateral instruments in each field and the developing jurisprudence of the WTO Dispute Settlement with regard to the exceptions specified in Article XX of the GATT. The articulated standpoints of all parties govern-ments and NGOs on both sides of the controversy -- are probed for 'agendas', whether stated or unstated.
