Heikki Hiilamo and I recently published Limited implementation of the framework convention on tobacco control's tobacco tax provision: global comparison in BMJ Open.  This paper, the latest in a series of papers we have done to assess the quantitative effects of the FCTC on tobacco control policies around the world, shows that the FCTC has had an effect on tax policy, but it has been limited and more likely to be in the richer countries.
