Jean Monnet Chair in Trade & Environment
Funded under the European Union Erasmus Plus Program, the Jean Monnet Chair in Trade & Environment aims to embed and deepen teaching in the field of European Studies within the curriculum taught at The University of Adelaide, most particularly in the field of European trade and environmental policy. This is to be achieved through a range of new teaching, research and outreach activities which leverage our internal expertise and draw on our extensive international networks, including:
• An elective module on European Trade and Environmental Policy
• Delivery of lectures to students from other departments and institutions
In addition to deepening teaching in the field of European trade and environmental Policy within the formal curriculum, the Jean Monnet Chair in Trade and Environment will engage in and maintain a constructive dialogue with government, business and civil society. These activities will comprise:
• Bi-Annual Seminars
• Short Professional Development Programs
• Outreach Workshops
These activities will be anchored in the latest research, practical knowledge, and insights from experts already engaged in relevant research, teaching and business related to the European Union. This will include exchange and cooperation in the delivery of teaching, research, and professional training activities between The University of Adelaide and our international partners in Europe.
Sustainability in European Union Trade Policy
Hosted by the Centre of Excellence in Trade & Environments, Jean Monnet Chair in Trade & Environment Professor Peter Draper; moderated the centres inaugural 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.
