Abstract

This memorandum considers the WTO legality of import bans on products and services made using forced labour. Section 1 considers prohibitions on imports of forced labour products, first by looking at the obligations under the GATT 1994 which apply to such measures, and then by considering the exceptions to these obligations. Section 2 considers the equivalent two questions under the GATS Agreement in relation to restrictions on forced labour services. The memorandum was commissioned by the International Lawyers Assisting Workers Network.

Keywords: WTO law, import prohibitions, forced labour, GATT, GATS
