Abstract

The essay comes in two parts. The first one is a rapid but critic survey of the principal concepts utilised in the literature about trade and environment, in which the focus is posed on the explicit or surreptitious nexuses existing between environmental issues and trade relationships of North with South of the World. The second one analyses the role of the environmental issues in the con text of the international organizations for the world trade, by the examination of some trade disputes in the Gatt and Wto. The principal thesis is that the environmental themes are becoming a useful way for developed countries to pose non-tariff barriers against developing or emerging countries, at the moment the latest are forced to open their markets to the industrial products and investments of the formers.
