FCTC Knowledge Hub on Legal Challenges

June 03, 2019

The McCabe Centre for Law and Cancer, a joint initiative of the Union for International Cancer Control and its member organization, Cancer Council Victoria, serves as a knowledge hub to assist legal challenges to implementation of the WHO tobacco treaty, the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The knowledge hub also assists in sharing information and cooperation between countries, provides technical assistance and conducts trainings.

The website covers two principal areas:

  • the relationship between international trade, investment law and FCTC implementation and
  • domestic legal challenges against tobacco control measures, including common arguments raised in legal challenges and overviews of domestic and regional case studies

The McCabe Centre is based in Melbourne, Australia, and receives funding support from the Australian Government.
