ECIPE Lunch Seminar: Learning the Ropes – Moving from the OLD to the NEW World of Trade

February 17 2016
Venue: ECIPE, Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Bruxelles
Speakers: Dr. Hanna Norberg
Time: 12:30

The effects of regulation on trade and economic integration.

The cosmos of trade and economic integration have changed. Previously an issue about the role of border barriers, what prevents deeper integration in the economy today are far more connected to regulation and failing compatibility of various regulatory regimes. While the new world of trade was about protection, said Pascal Lamy in his Jan Tumlir Lecture, the new world of trade is about precaution. But how do we make sense of the role of regulation in patterns of economic integration? How do such barriers work in the real life of commerce – and how can regulatory ambitions be maintained while not preventing economic integration?
