In this episode we are joined by Susan Bright (Competition Partner, London), Aline Doussin (International Trade Partner, London) and Lourdes Catrain (International Trade Partner, Brussels) to talk about the interpretation of a "national security" notion under World Trade Organisation rules.
- What does the term "trade war" mean as a point of international trade?
- Why have the rules governing when security interests prevail over trade interests – and when they do not – recently come into focus for members of the WTO?
- What's the single biggest risk resulting from deploying a national security justification in the field of trade?
- What does this mean for future trade relations between the US, the EU and the UK?
