Event description

Description

This conference has two goals. The first is to explore the important legal and political questions about the new role of the UK in the international trade context, and in particular with respect to the need to enter into several Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs), that a possible Brexit raises. The second objective is to broaden the view and discuss the state of the art in the PTAs world by considering both horizontal issues and specific issues.
