US Cloves Cigarettes case and its implications

For those interested in the implications of the US Cloves Cigarettes case (DS406) on domestic regulatory policy space, tobacco control and control of non-communicable diseases, Benn McGrady has co-authored a piece titled "Tobacco Control and Beyond: The Broader Implications of United States-Clove Cigarettes for Non-Communicable Diseases". It is found on SSRN here. I had earlier blogged about the Cloves Cigarette case here, here and here.

The article has brought out the complex relationship between domestic regulatory space and the standard of proof required to justify its applicability in the context of the TBT and GATT provisions.

Preferred way to experience the lovely plantations of Kerala
could be on backwater cruises.
