Chapter Summary

This chapter provides concluding remarks on the second part of the book Sustainable Development as a Principle of International Law. It has to be acknowledged that the panels and the Appellate Body have progressively developed jurisprudence that seeks to address the compatibility of national measures aimed at the protection of the environment or other concerns with world trading rules. Sustainable development remains directly applicable as a general principle part and parcel of general international law to the settlement of disputes concerning claims of world trade organization (WTO) incompatibility. The application of the principle, consisting of a necessity test and a proportionality test, would provide for a consistent and uniform method to deal with the conflicting interests at stake.

Keywords: International Law; sustainable development; world trade organization (WTO)
