2012, November 9, "Linking trade and non-commercial interests: the EU as a global role model?"

The workshop invites academics, legal and policy experts, policy-makers and stakeholders to discuss the modalities of the EU employing trade instruments so as to promote the respect for human rights, internationally recognized labour standards and economic development. Particular attention will be given to emerging issues such as the quest for consistency in the conduct of EU external policy and institutional coordination within the EU as well as the ongoing drafting of the EU investment policy. Linkages between Internal market objectives and external actions and the EU’s experience of balancing societal interest with liberalisation will be analysed.
