Chapter Summary

"Sustainable development" is mentioned in the context of "the optimal use of the world's resources". The structure of this chapter rests upon the understanding that questions regarding the compatibility of particular regulations with WTO law can only be raised if the different sources of law are applicable. If a particular regime were to prevail over WTO law from the outset, any further examination of the WTO law's potential to integrate environmental, social and economic aspects would become redundant. This said, after a brief excursus on multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs) and their relationship with WTO law the rest of the chapter examines the compatibility of waste trade-related measures with WTO principles, before examining the WTO exception provisions which may justify deviations from trade law rules. The chapter examines the chances and limits within WTO law exception provisions in terms of balancing different regulatory goals.

Keywords: multilateral environmental agreements (MEAs); sustainable waste trade; WTO law
