The EU and Free Trade: Law and Policy
In this tumultuous moment for global trade governance, the European Union places itself as leader for reform. The challenges that the EU faces in this reform process are however numerous and, as highlighted by recent pronouncements of the European Court of Justice such a the Singapore Opinion an the Achmea judgment, 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 and the UKAEL (UK Association for European Law), in the framework of the Jean Monnet Network “LAwTTIP: Legal Ambiguities withstanding the TTIP,” are pleased to invite you to a 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. The panel include Dr Isabelle Van Damme, Counsel at Van Bael & Bellis, Dr Lucio Gussetti, Director and Principal Legal Adviser for Foreign and External Relations of the European Commission, and Sir Alan Dashwood QC. Christopher Vajda QC, Judge at the European Court of Justice, will chair.
The (free) event will take place on 9 May, at 18.00 in Bush House S 2.03. A drinks reception on the 8th floor of Bush House (South Side) will follow.
