More Information

Since the end of the Second World War, the liberal economic order has guided global economic policy. The Trump presidency, and the rise of nationalist populism in Europe and other parts of the world, have challenged this order, reflecting global developments in favour of increased economic nationalism, and mobilisation against globalisation. This research workshop will bring together scholars, particularly from the fields of political science, economics and law, to take stock of global trade relations as a result of the Trump presidency, BREXIT and upcoming European elections, and discuss potential policy options to address anti-globalisation sentiments. An overview of the workshop panel discussions:

1.) The state of the global economy since January 2017.
2.) The EU’s trade policy strategy at the multilateral and bilateral levels, economic relations with the US, Canada, Japan and China.
3.) Canada’s perspective on Canadian economic relations with respect to the US, the EU, Japan and China.
4.) Lessons learned and possible policy and governance solutions.

This event is an activity of the Jean Monnet Network on EU-Canada Relations, co-funded by the Erasmus + Programme of the European Union, by Carleton University, and by partner Institutions, and part of the Faculty of Public Affairs Research Series.FPA Research Series
