Founded in 2009, the philosophy of Trade, Law and Development has been to generate and sustain a constructive and democratic debate on emergent issues in international economic law and to serve as a forum for discussion and distribution of ideas. In keeping with these ideals, the Board of Editors is pleased to announce Trade & Public Health as the theme for its next Special Issue (Vol. VIII, No. 1).
The tension between the competing values of free trade and regulatory autonomy has frequently found specific manifestation in trade disputes triggered by public health measures. In the recent past, governmental regulation aimed at protection of public health has given rise to several complex legal issues. Measures taken to ensure availability of affordable drugs, technical regulations aimed at controlling tobacco addiction, SPS measures aimed at protection of human life and health, stockholding of grains for food security, and mandatory plain packaging are a few instances of public health-related measures which have been subjected to intense legal scrutiny.
The prominence gained by public health related measures, and the legal intricacies associated therewith, call for closer scholarly attention. Organizers believe that a volume dedicated to cutting-edge research on the tension between international economic law and public health regulation will be of immense relevance to legal practitioners, academics and policy-makers alike.
