Abstract:     
This commentary on the security exception provision embedded in the GATS pioneers in that it discusses issues of national security relating to trade in services in a dynamic manner taking into account current threats and contentious issues relating to WTO Members' essential security interests. Case-law is critically discussed to identify judicial interpretations that may be valid under the GATS.
