Abstract

This short paper reflects on developments in international trade affecting the security exception in the law of the World Trade Organization (WTO). The paper cautions against the increasing invocation of the exception in disputes and encourages progress in other areas of trade to avoid a WTO panel ruling on the exception.

Keywords: national security, exception, trade, WTO, international law
