Abstract

Engaging with scientific expertise is necessary to insure the effectiveness of WTO dispute settlement in areas such as the SPS Agreement. In rejecting the Uruguay Round texts and basic principles concerning the processing of policy-relevant science for lay decision makers, panels and the Appellate Body have counterproductively tended to undermine the scientific integrity, institutional legitimacy, and ultimately the speed and efficacy of WTO dispute settlement.
