Abstract:In the Appellate Body report on EC measures affecting meat and meat products, commonly referred to as the Hormones case, some of the findings of the Appellate Body related to the appropriate standard of review that panels must observe when evaluating the legality of a WTO member state measure that is in dispute. As this was the first Appellate Body ruling on the issue of standard of review, it could be an important indicator of the approach panels may take in the future to this issue.

- The Journal of International Economic Law is dedicated to encouraging thoughtful and scholarly attention to a very broad range of subjects that concern the relation of law to international economic activity, by providing the major English language medium for publication of high-quality manuscripts relevant to the endeavours of scholars, government officials, legal professionals and others. The emphasis will be on fundamental, long-term, systemic problems and possible solutions, in the light of empirical observations and experience, as well as theoretical and multi-disciplinary approaches. It is expected, therefore, that the journal's contents will potentially influence real events and provide important critiques of policies, negotiations, or court and tribunal cases. In this manner the journal should contribute modestly to promoting peace, world welfare and enhancement of the quality of life for all peoples.
