18. FIW Workshop: Political Economy of Trade Policy


FIW-Workshop "Political Economy of Trade Policy"


Tuesday, September 22, 2015,11:00 a.m.
The Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW), Sitzungssaal II (“Gobelinsaal”), Stubenring 1, 1011 Vienna

Political Economy of Trade Policy


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 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.


The programme can be found here.
