British, EU & World Trade Policy in Flux: the Agenda for 2021
A joint webinar of City, University of London & the Senior European Experts Group

Trade policy is in a state of flux. With the growing importance of China, the change in US policy towards the World Trade Organisation and the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, what should trade policymakers try to do next? Can they fix the much-criticised but essential role of the WTO? Can they navigate a way through the trade disputes between the US and China? Can the EU, now debating its future trade policy, bridge its internal divisions over trade openness and the fear of a dominant China? And what of the UK, which is struggling to adapt to its new trading relationship with the EU whilst seeking new markets for its goods and services?

These complex and inter-related questions will be debated by an expert panel chaired by Professor Panos Koutrakos, Professor of EU Law and Jean Monnet Professor of EU Law, City, University of London.

The speakers are:
Sir Jonathan Faull, Director-General Internal Market & Services, European Commission 2010-15; member of the Senior European Experts Group
Professor Joost Pauwelyn, Professor of International Law, Graduate Institute, Geneva & Co-Director of the Centre for Trade & Economic Integration
Professor Katy Hayward, Professor of Political Sociology, Queen’s University, Belfast & Senior Fellow, UK in a Changing Europe
John Cooke, Chair, Liberalisation of Trade in Services Committee, City UK 2010 and former Under-Secretary for Trade Policy, Department of Trade & Industry; member of the Senior European Experts Group.
