ABSTRACT
The article reports on the debate on genetically modified (GM) crops in Europe. The debate has hit the spotlight again following a vote by the environment ministers of the European Union to reject a European Commission proposal to force Austria to lift its ban on two strains of GM maize. The proposal had been put forward by the Commission in response to a ruling from the World Trade Organization, which stated that Austria's ban contravened international trade laws.
