Adjudication and the Precautionary Principle in the EU and the WTO
Judicial review of administrative use of scientific evidence when adopting precautionary measuresby Jostein Røynesdal
Literature on the precautionary principle has increased in volume over the last 15 years, ranging from observations on developments in case law, areas of application and differing views, to extensive analyses describing the value and impact of the precautionary principle as a tool for scientists, administrators and politicians. This paper does not make any assessment of the virtue, the value, or the importance of the precautionary principle. The focus is on the legal core of the precautionary principle: its effects on the law and the assessment of scientific data before the courts.
