Chapter Summary

The overlap" between the sub-sections of GATT Article XX is not in conformity with the principle of effectiveness in treaty interpretation. This chapter concerns the importance of the policy" test and the consequences of neglecting it - as well as some suggestions as to overcoming the problem. It consists of a series of questions. The questions are, inter alia, why is the policy" test important? Why does it matter if the sub-sections overlap? Why are moral policies different than other policies? The questions, by and large, build on each other as building bricks, and they form the basis of the structure of the analyses - therefore, specific issues concerning, for example, treaty interpretation are included where they relate specifically to answering the posed question.
