Seminar: Sustainability in European Union Trade Policy


An underlying objective is to strengthen the competitiveness of production relying on environmentally friendly technologies.
This requires continued engagement to support trading on WTO terms, the further inclusion of environmental clauses in trade agreements and enhanced intellectual property-rights protection.

To provide insights into plausible policy implications, we need to take stock of the current policy implementation and draw on evidence from international economics research. These will be discussed in the seminar.


Presenter: Associate Professor Susanna Thede, Institute for European Studies, University of Malta

Discussant: Emeritus Professor Richard Pomfret, University of Adelaide

Moderator: Professor Peter Draper, Jean Monnet Chair in Trade and Environment, University of Adelaide
