    Work for Others, not Yourself: Globalization, Protectionism and Europe’s Quest for Strategic Autonomy

    By: Fredrik Erixon

It should be noted that the political discussions about...

    By: Fredrik Erixon Philipp Lamprecht 

    There is now a long history of countries improving sustainability standards in most parts of the economy while at the same time pursuing the ambitions of rules-based international trade and economic integration with other countries. It is not surprising that countries at the vanguard of sustainability also tend to be the countries that are most open to trade. This Report looks closer at the interplay between the formulation of domestic standards and provisions...
