European trade policy in a changing international environment
Coordinators: Enrique Feás & Federico Steinberg – January 2020.
The European Union (EU) must coalesce internally, increase the legitimacy of the economic openness in the eyes of its citizens and act as a homogeneous bloc capable of leading the reform of the rules-based international order. In parallel, it must continue to weave its network of preferential trade agreements to be prepared for an eventual –and possible– collapse of the multilateral system embedded in the World Trade Organization (WTO), as well as the division of the world economy into blocks within a neo-imperialist logic.
