Initial Award Abstract
The Center for Policy Analysis on Trade and Health (CPATH) requests support in the amount of $5,000 to convene a statewide consortium meeting to establish a research agenda around tobacco and trade. International trade provides the tobacco industry with a global legal and regulatory arena to challenge federal, state, and local tobacco control measures. Tobacco and trade is a critically important part of tobacco control at the local, state, and national level, and will have a major impact on tobacco control efforts in the state of California. This statewide consortium meeting provides a timely and critical opportunity to develop a research agenda, and to identify key research questions that will inform public policy regarding how the tobacco industry can use trade rules to influence U.S. tobacco control laws and regulations that impact California, including the Tobacco Control Act.
