Most of us do not immediately think of health protection measures as trade barriers. Yet to the trade liberalization interest they are often exactly that – ‘hidden protectionism,’ some would say. When the conflict between trade and health hardens into a confrontation, allocation of the burden of proof becomes the critical factor in determining the outcome. And the outcome of such a WTO dispute may affect a very large number of people.
This important book examines the WTO provisions applicable to health protection measures from a burden of proof perspective, with an up-to-date and thorough analysis of all relevant case law.
No other source offers such a comprehensive analysis of WTO provisions applicable to health protection measures. This book’s burden of proof perspective makes it an especially valuable resource for trade law experts, WTO member representatives, and interested NGOs seeking to understand and discuss the balancing of health protection and trade liberalization.
