EU Trade Policy at the Crossroads: between Economic Liberalism and Democratic Challenges
ÖFSE – Austrian Foundation for Development Research in cooperation with EAEPE – European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy and the EuroMemo Group (European Economists for an Alternative Economic Policy in Europe) will convene a conference under the title of „EU Trade Policy at the Crossroads: between Economic Liberalism and Democratic Challenges” on February 4 – 6, 2016 in Vienna, Austria.
The conference wants to contribute to the trade policy debate by promoting (i) a trans- and interdisciplinary analysis of the current trade regime and policies in the EU and its likely economic, social and political impacts, and by facilitating (ii) a multi-stakeholder debate on alternative conceptualizations of trade and trade policy in the EU. Thus, the conference has the primary aim of bringing together the community of critical scholars and resarchers on trade policy and interlink them with trade activists and policy-makers from civil society, trade unions, and other progressive political organisations.
