Event description

Description

*This conference has reached the maximum number of places. If you are interested in attending, however, please email the organising committee: Dr. Rilka Dragneva-Lewers (r.dragnevalewers@bham.ac.uk), Dr. Luca Rubini (l.rubini@bham.ac.uk), I-Ju Chen (ixc495@bham.ac.uk). We will contact you in due course. Thank you.

Conference venue is changed to Room 112 in Muirhead Tower - R21 on the campus map. Starbucks is on the Ground Floor of the building.

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.
