Cross-cutting issues, by their very nature, usually cause legal and practical complications and go beyond a purely trade dimension. How to ensure that trade measures taken under the WTO would not turn into excessively disruptive elements for the protection of non-economic interests or the operation of different regimes poses a challenge ahead for the WTO. This book addresses this challenge from two perspectives.

Part I explorers some key non-economic concerns. It includes issues on FCTC tobacco advertisement restrictions, anti-tobacco smuggling in light of Dominican-Cigarettes Case, compulsory licenses for access to medicine under bilateral investment agreements, excessive trade response to 2009 A/H1N1 influenza outbreak, and trade and cultural protection in the context of anti-dumping. Part II discusses some areas for the enhancement of healthier trade ties. It includes issues on DSU Article 21.5 compliance proceedings, export subsides remedies, DSU Article 25 arbitration, EC-IT product Case, and regional procurement arrangements in East Asia.

It is expected to be a useful book that helps readers (including scholars, practitioners, and students) widen their understanding of the WTO law.
