1 Introduction and scope of the paper
2 Identification of relevant research hypotheses
2.1 Legal issues relating to the WTO
2.1.1 The WTO now interprets GATT rules so as to allow countries sufficient space to pursue many trade-related environmental policies
2.1.2 WTO law does not adequately address the role of other relevant rules of international law in adjudicating dispute on trade and environment
2.2 The institutional aspects of the WTO dispute settlement mechanism
2.2.1 The WTO dispute settlement mechanism is not structured appropriately to address environmental disputes
2.2.2 WTO dispute settlement body is not the appropriate forum to address environmental disputes
2.2.3 Many trade and environment disputes lend themselves to non-judicial alternative dispute resolution mechanisms
3 Survey of methodological approaches
