The EUTIP research network invites paper proposals for the Global Politics and EU Free Trade Policy Conference, 10-11 December 2018 in Brussels.
EU trade policy moves in a changing global environment. Multilateral institutions are in danger, and at the same time trade disputes are increasing. Current events show the close connection between trade and security policy. Protectionist trade sanctions are allegedly motivated by security policy reasons; conversely, security policy measures affect international trade. The subject of this conference therefore is the exploration of the relations between Global Policies and EU Trade Policy along three themes:
- Theme 1: Relation of EU FTAs to Multilateral Trade Rules
- Theme 2: EU Trade Policy in Global Policy Context
- Theme 3: EU Trade Defence Instruments in a Protectionist Environment – Fit for Purpose?
The deadline is 6 October 2018. Please submit proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
