Call for papers: Trade and Integration in a Time of Anti-Globalization
Lately, international trade and economic integration has met growing skepticism. Proposals for new agreements on economi integration, such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), struggle to move forward, facing an increasingly critical public opinion. At the same time, countries are preparing to withdraw from existing economic integration agreements, the prime example being Brexit, where the United Kingdom is about to leave the European Union (EU). The debate about trade has also shifted to focus more on negative labor market effects, and some political leaders, such as President Trump in the US, are proposing the introduction of new trade barriers. Thus, there is a new – arguably more protectionist – context within which international trade takes place. The aim of the conference is to discuss research relevant for understanding how to think about trade and integratio in this changing political environment.
Conference arranged by: Lund University School of Economics and Management, and the Swedish Network for European Studies in Economics and Business.
Time: 25-27 October 2017
Place: Malmö Live, Malmö, Sweden
Proposal Deadline: 1 June 2017
