About this book

Trish Kelly's book is the first to provide a comprehensive analysis of the nine environmental and health disputes that have been adjudicated at the WTO since 1995. The investigation concludes that criticism of the WTO has been overstated. The disputes suggest that the WTO has been able to balance trade, environmental and health objectives. Surprisingly, nations do in fact retain sovereignty over environmental and health policy. The discussion illuminates the strengths and weaknesses of the dispute resolution process and closes with suggestions for improving it. This book will appeal not only to academics, be they economists, lawyers, political scientists, and academic libraries, but also practitioners, policymakers, and members of consumer, environmental, and business organizations who follow the debates surrounding the WTO's influence on environmental and health regulations.
