Abstract
This report analyzes the tobacco carve-out clause (as well as the negotiations that led to its adoption) included in the final text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, which permits the TPP Parties to deny investors that challenge their tobacco control measures access to the investor-state dispute settlement mechanism. The report also discusses the potential advantages and disadvantages of such a solution.
