Economy / Foreign Trade Conference

The Economy/ Foreign Trade Conference is open to the public and aims to bring together renowned international experts to discuss economic changes in the Atlantic area and the new opportunities and challenges the European Union and its Atlantic partners .

Greater knowledge of the shifting commercial dynamics between the EU and its Atlantic partners promises to generate new knowledge and greater understanding of the EU’s commercial interdependencies and to balance the inordinate amount of scholarship and policy attention focused on the Pacific, which risks underplaying the EU’s role as an Atlantic actor.

The Conference will address continuities and changes in commercial connectivity across the Atlantic space and offer learning opportunties from mutual experience with sub-regional integration efforts such as the EU Single Market.

This invitation is open for scholars, policymakers, civil society representatives and the wider public, who will be able to participate in-person as well as virtually via interactive video technology.

The conference will be held in English.
