  Add to Calendar 2018-06-20 9:00 2018-06-22 17:30 Europe/Paris Populism and the Globalisation Backlash: Scenarios for the WTO and 21st Century Trade Agreements

The increasingly open, rules-based trading system has been a driver of global economic growth and rising average per capita incomes since 1947. Yet opposition currently confronts the system from a number of different quarters. While some of the concerns arising from populists are ill-founded, other concerns, including adjustment costs and distributional effects of globalization, and the ability to pursue national policy goals – raise important questions for the design of international agreements. Furthermore, the development of complex production relations distributed across many countries seemingly demands cooperation on a variety of regulatory policies at the same time that the populist backlash is arguing for greater national autonomy. Where to draw the lines? This seminar examines these issues, including a focus on the traditional integration agenda that centers on rule-making by major trading powers on policies that generate negative international spillovers. Application deadline: 8 June 2018
