This chapter first discusses the connection between tobacco control and human rights. It describes human rights obligations, vis-à-vis tobacco control, and examines in closer detail the connection between the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) and human rights. In particular, it looks at the role of human rights in monitoring and enforcing the FCTC. The second part of the chapter examines industry arguments against tobacco regulation while showing how they are flawed from a human rights perspective. Finally, the chapter identifies new areas of concern in tobacco control and human rights, such as industry arguments based on trade and investment law and connections with intellectual property rights.

Keywords:   human rights, litigation, framework convention on tobacco control, tobacco regulation, trade, investment law, intellectual property rights
