International Trade: The New Normal

Date: Thursday 10th Jun 2021 - Thursday 10th Jun 2021 

Programme Areas:  

Location: 33 Great Sutton St, London, EC1V 0DX, United Kingdom 

The Banque de France, CEPII, CEPR and University of Surrey are jointly organising a workshop to explore economic dimensions of the “new normal” environment of international trade, which has been severely impacted by recent events and associated rises in trade costs. Increases in tariffs and sanctions (e.g. U.S-China trade war), globalisation backlash, institutional challenges (e.g. Brexit, WTO), and Covid-19 are imposing a rethinking of multilateral trade and the way that firms organise production across borders.
The workshop is fully virtual on two half-days 10-11 June 2021. The programme will include seven academic papers, including a Guest Lecture by Gene Grossman (Princeton and CEPR), a keynote presentation by Paola Conconi (ECARES and CEPR). A Policy Round Table with Lionel Fontagné (Banque de France and CEPII), Beata Javorcik (ERBD, University of Oxford and CEPR), Marion Jensen (OECD) and Robert Koopman (WTO and CEPR) and moderated by Martin Sandbu (Financial Times).
