Location: The European Parliament, Brussels.
Date: Wednesday June 28 2017
Time: 9:30 – 13:30
As we take stock of recent political events in the US and Europe concerning trade policy and its impacts, we will bring together a range of experts, academics, NGOs and MEPs to discuss alternatives to the current model and how to improve trade policy going forward.
As the progressive wing in the European Parliament, we will investigate realistic alternatives and present options for positive change in areas such as democracy and transparency, social and environmental standards, investor duties and rights, to multilateralism and global supply chains.
