The Future of Trade Defence Instruments: Global Policy Trends and Legal Challenges
This conference is being organized against the backdrop of envisaged important modifications to the European Union’s Trade Defence Instruments.
The conference will analyse Trade Defence Instruments in their socio-economic, political and legal contexts; describe the changing international environment, in particular as regards the WTO framework; look at the EU rules as they exist today, seven years after the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty; and consider the envisaged changes to such rules. Finally, the conference will contrast the EU’s Trade Defence Instruments with other related legal instruments, such as competition law or regional trade agreements. In this context the implications for the future relationship with the UK after Brexit will also be analysed.
