Workshop: Product Labeling, Territorial Disputes, and International Trade After the ECJ’s Psagot  Ruling

Friday,  January 17, 2020, 9 AM -12 PM
Arlington, VA

The European Court of Justice recently ruled that Israeli products from the West Bank and Golan Heights must have origin labelling that declares their provenance as being from “settlements” in “occupied territory.” This workshop seeks to examine the labelling requirements from an international trade law perspective. Does international trade law require labelling of goods from occupied territories? If so, what other territories might such requirements apply to? What are the consequences of the EU limiting its “ethical” labelling requirements to Israeli-controlled territories?
