Chapter Summary

This is the conclusion chapter of the book, non-economic objectives in WTO law / justification provisions of GATT, GATS, SPS, and TBT agreements, which examines the conditions under which WTO Members can invoke non-economic objectives to justify their trade-restrictive national measures. The main thesis of the study is that free trade and trade liberalisation do not always trump non-economic objectives under WTO law. It is essential for international economic law to give legal recognition to the intrinsic value of non-economic objectives. The study argues that the non-economic justification clauses of WTO law can and shall be applied by the WTO dispute settlement bodies.

Keywords: GATS; GATT; non-economic objectives; SPS agreements; TBT agreements; WTO law
