The report of the first Warwick Commission was published in late 2007, with the aim of sparking a lively and positive debate about the issues facing the world trade system today. The Warwick Commissions have been charged with carrying out independent analyses of issues of global importance, with the goal of making practical and realistic recommendations about how to move them forward. This discussion taking place in Brussels is part of a process of testing their first report against the realities of global trade and the problems that policymakers face.

The report of the first Warwick Commission was published in late 2007, with the aim of sparking a lively and positive debate about the issues facing the world trade system today.

The Warwick Commissions have been charged with carrying out independent analyses of issues of global importance, with the goal of making practical and realistic recommendations about how to move them forward. This discussion taking place in Brussels is part of a process of testing their first report against the realities of global trade and the problems that policymakers face.

The two longer sessions will delve into two of the main themes – decision making in global economic governance and the future of preferential trading arrangements – areas where many questions have already been raised, but where proactive answers and innovative solutions are what is required.

Many of the Warwick Commissioners involved in the production of the report will be present, including some prominent and experienced figures. But the floor will be open to all present to discuss and question their key findings and recommendations. The conference is followed by a reception, further extending the opportunity for all participants to discuss the report with its authors and how it can be put to practical use in considering the way forward for the multilateral trade regime.
