 Dual-use Goods: (Mis)Understanding Werner and Leifer

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that the current dual-use regime, based entirely on a Community regulation, is technically defective. It has limited practical importance since, apart from the addition of New Zealand, the only changes to the list of ‘good guys’ in Annex II relate to countries that have now joined the EU. However, the ramifications of the misunderstanding of the cases of Werner, Leifer, and Centro-Com in litigation and in the academic literature, extend far more widely.

Keywords: dual-use goods; dual-use exports; Werner; Leifer; Centro-Com
