Abstract

Plain packaging of cigarettes and other tobacco products represents a crucial focal point for industry, government, and public health across the world today. Tobacco poses a serious and widespread threat to health in developed and developing countries alike, and the question of how best to deal with that threat in the face of millions of addicted individuals and a long-entrenched industry raises a host of legal issues. This volume offers a detailed exploration of some of these issues from a number of perspectives, providing a rich case study not only of the challenges of tobacco control regulation but also of health regulation more generally.

Keywords: plain packaging, cigarettes, World Health Organization
