The Return of Unilateralism?The Legitimacy of Unilateral Animal Welfare Measures under the WTO——The Case of Canada-EU Seal Ban Dispute

The Dispute Settlement Body established a panel to solve the dispute of EU's Seal Ban in 2012,which was brought by Canada.The EU Seal ban dispute was the first dispute in which the Member defended herself by the moral exception clause of WTO.Canada claimed that the Indigenous People Exemption and Marine Animal Administration Exemption of the Seal Ban treated Denmark and EU more favorably,which violated Article 1.1 and 3.4 of GATT and Article 2.1 of TBT.Furthermore,Canada claimed that the Seal Ban forbade the imports and sales of seal products regardless the seal was harvested humanly or inhumanly,which constituted unnecessary obstacles and violated Article 20(a),20(b) of GATT and Article 2.2 of TBT.The Member's animal welfare measures will be reviewed by DSB more seriously due to the "unilateraHsm" and "export of moral value" natures of the measures.
