Securing the Supply Chain: Does the Container Security Initiative Comply with WTO Law?

by Dr. Christopher Dallimore

This dissertation investigates the Container Security Initiative, a security measure of the US Customs and Border Protection Bureau that aims to protect container traffic between the United States and its trade partners against terrorist attacks. The focal point of the investigation is the question whether the Container Security Initiative is compatible with the obligations of the American government under WTO law. Furthermore, the dissertation deals with the question whether the Container Security Initiative can be justified on the basis of the available exceptions in the WTO agreements in the case of infringement.
