Description




The EU and Free Trade: Law and Policy

In this tumultuous moment for global trade governance, characterised by the rise of both protectionism and populist movements, the European Union places itself as leader for reform. The challenges that the EU faces in this reform process are however numerous and include, among others, the limits of the EU competencies for the conclusion of its broad Free Trade Agreements and the future of investor-state disputes in the EU.

On the very “fitting” date of Europe Day (9 May), the Centre of European Law of King’s College London, in the framework of the Jean Monnet Network “LAwTTIP: Legal Ambiguities withstanding the TTIP,” is pleased to invite you to the seminar on The EU and Free Trade: Law and Policy.

This seminar provides an opportunity for expert analysis of these and many more issues relating to the future of EU trade, from the investment law perspective by Dr Isabelle Van Damme, Counsel at Van Bael & Bellis, from the EU law perspective by Dr Lucio Gussetti, Director and Principal Legal Adviser for Foreign and External Relations of the European Commission, by Sir Alan Dashwood QC, in the light of his practical experience of the Micula litigation. Christopher Vajda QC, Judge at the European Court of Justice, will chair.


The event will start at 18.15 in the Harvard Lecture Theatre in Bush House and will be followed by a drinks reception in the 8th Floor Bush House.


Organised jointly with UKAEL (UK Association of European Lawyers)
