Rewriting the rules for a more progressive trade and investment model

“Between the faithful and unconditional promoters of free trade and the populist critiques defending protectionist and nationalist visions of the world, there is a critical political space for progressive forces to defend a regulated vision of globalization” (“For the many, not the few – A progressive model for trade and investment”, 2018).

During the past years, we have seen major challenges emerging on both sides of th Atlantic that are resetting the framework for European-U.S. relations. The Trump administration has recast the American policy rhetoric concerning key tenets of the transataltic relationship, while Brexit, terrorism, populist backlashes, and economic uncertainty have undermined confidence in the future of the European Union. Against this background, you are cordially invited to join the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and Initiative for Policy Dialogue (IPD) at their 8th annual conference for a discussion on the way forward for a more progressive trade policy.
