Abstract

The Brazil – Taxation and Charges panel report has rekindled a long-standing debate over the scope and meaning of the public morals exception in the GATT/WTO legal system. This article offers two criticisms of the panel report. First, the report has set an exceedingly low threshold for the identification of public morals. Second, the Panel’s hands-off approach is likely to trigger a slippery slope risk of what sorts of objectives could be properly called “public morals”.
