Environmental Trade Disputes and the WTO
P. K. Rao
Price: $ 29.5

This book examines the role of international trade and the disputes arising out of national and international attempts to protect the local/regional/global environment in the context of international trade policies and practices. Typical cases are illustrative of the poor state of recognition of environmental interdependencies in the process of promoting free trade under the WTO framework. Trade liberalization for its own sake is not entirely meaningful just as environmental protection in its extreme form may also be inefficient. Adoption of ecosystems approach, application of the Precautionary Principle, Polluter Pays Principle, and the Trust Law are seen as some of the elements of the required integration of economic and environmental aspects of customary international public laws and emerging new norms of international environmental law. These elements are required for improved resolution of environmental trade disputes under the WTO regime.
