ECIPE Workshop: How Europe Talks Trade – Public Diplomacy on Trade in the Time of Populism and Isolationism

May 31 2017
Venue: ECIPE Office, Avenue des Arts 40, 6th floor, 1040 Brussels
Speakers: John Clancy, Christofer Fjellner, Ralph Kamphöner, Samuel Lowe, Natalia Macyra, Hosuk Lee-Makiyama
Time: 10:00

There will always be differences of opinion – but how do we debate them? A unique expertise of officials, NGOs and business analyse the recent debates, and the lessons for the ones to come.

The trade debate has always been contentious, but rarely interested the general public. But with Brexit and trade agreements like TTIP, CETA or TISA, trade is now national news, and citizens are not fully convinced by EU trade policy. Whatever the European governments are doing to engage the public on trade, it’s simply not working.

We invite all those who are engaged in trade advocacy and public diplomacy to a discussion on the trade debate. There will always be differences of opinion – but how do we debate them? Are the “facts” convincing? What were the decisive messaging and moments of the recent campaigns? Has Europe adopted a language of trade populism and isolationism?

We gather a unique communication expertise from officials, NGOs and business to analyse the recent debates, and the lessons for the ones to come.
