The conference aims at bringing stakeholders from academia, civil society and politics together to discuss analysis and visions on the future of trade and international economic cooperation. In a variety of formats, the different stakeholders will receive the opportunity to present and discuss papers, to debate current developments and to network. The programme will combine three formats: (i) 2-3 plenary sessions with 2-3 invited speakers on topics of more general interest; (ii) 4-5 parallel workshop tracks devoted to particular issues and arranged in content-oriented tracks, which will be based on presentations of accepted papers. The format of all sessions will allow ample room for in-depth discussion between participants. (iii) On the evening before the conference, a public opening event featuring 2-3 prominent speakers will be directed towards the general public and representatives of the media.
