This article focuses on the disciplines on export restrictions found in the World Trade Organization (WTO) agreements as well as relevant jurisprudence by WTO panels and the Appellate Body, both in general and in particular in the context of export restrictions on natural resources. The article also explores alternative approaches for increasing the regulation of export restrictions, found in the accession protocols of some recently acceded WTO Members. In addition, the wider impact of export restrictions is examined in the areas of sustainable development, food security, and environmental protection.
