Latest WTI Teaching Activities

In March and April 2021, the WTI hosted two courses. One was a tailor-made course for officials of the Department for International Trade of the United Kingdom, whereas the other was a PhD Winter School course on sustainable trade. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both courses were held online.

The tailor-made course on international trade remedies examined actions taken in response to sales at less than fair value (antidumping), subsidies (countervailing duties) and import surges (safeguards). It consisted of two modules, which were taught by Edwin Vermulst and Fernando Piérola (Module 1), as well as Jesse Kreier and Luca Rubini (Module 2).

The PhD course "Shaping sustainable trade: what role for international trade law and policy?" aimed to provide an in-depth understanding of the impact of international trade law and policy in shaping an emerging wave of green regulation at national and international levels. The lecturers were Dominic Coppens, PhD, senior associate at Sidley Austin LLP, Brussels, and Nicolas Lockhart, a partner at Sidley Austin LLP, Geneva.

Both courses got very good feedback from the participants and we would like to thank all lecturers for their time and for sharing their experience and knowledge in their respective fields of expertise.
