Political Economy of Trade Policy

22  September 2015    11:00 am CEST

One-day workshop on current trade negotiations (especially TTIP)

In cooperation with:


The Federal Ministry of Science (Research and Economy (BMWFW)), Stubenring 1, 1011 Vienna, Sitzungssaal II (“Gobelinsaal”)


The goal of this one-day workshop is to bring the scientific community on trade and political economy together with policy-makers on current trade negotiations, especially TTIP. The first part, the scientific workshop, will consist of research presentations in a seminar format on the political economy of trade deals. The second part, opening the audience to the wider public, will contain a keynote, which will be presented by Lord Maude, Minister for Trade and Investment, followed by a panel discussion on the politics and strategic implications of the current trade negotiations. We believe that this is the ideal format to reach both a wide audience, and an expert group in Austria, one of the key countries for the TTIP negotiations.
