The Board of Editors of the above journal has invited original and unpublished submissions for the above Special Issue on Trade and Public Health for publication as ‘Articles’, ‘Notes’, ‘Comments’ and ‘Book Reviews’, currently scheduled for publication in May, 2016.
The objective for the above special issue is stated as under:
“The tension between the competing values of free trade and regulatory autonomy has frequently found specific manifestation in trade disputes triggered by public health measures. In the recent past, governmental regulation aimed at protection of public health has given rise to several complex legal issues. Measures taken to ensure availability of affordable drugs, technical regulations aimed at controlling tobacco addiction, SPS measures aimed at protection of human life and health, stockholding of grains for food security, and mandatory plain packaging are a few instances of public health-related measures which have been subjected to intense legal scrutiny. The prominence gained by public health related measures, and the legal intricacies associated therewith, call for closer scholarly attention.”
Manuscripts may be submitted via e-mail, ExpressO, or the TL&D website. In case of any queries, contact at: editors[at]tradelawdevelopment[dot]com.
Last date for submission is: 15 March, 2016.
