Las medidas comerciales multilaterales para la protección del medio ambiente y el sistema multilateral del comercio

by Elizalde Carranza, Miguel Angel

Abstract (Summary)
Abstract To achieve sustained development it is necessary to make the trade agreements administered by the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the multilateral environmental agreements (MEA) mutually supportive. The problem is that these agreements regulate trade measures from different perspectives: while some MEAs permit them as necessary to achieve their objectives, the agreements of the WTO generally forbid them because they are perceived as an obstacle for economic development. The institutional differences between these regimes indicate that, in the case that a difference arises, it would probably be resolved by the Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) of the WTO. So, making these normative systems mutually supportive depends, at least in part, on a sustainable interpretation of the trade agreements by the DSB, in other words, that forbids protectionism and permits trade measures based on authentic environmental considerations.
