Conference: Trade Law in the Trump Era: A Transatlantic Perspective

On September 8-9, 2017, Boston University School of Law will hold a conference on "Trade Law in the Trump Era: A Transatlantic Perspective." The program is here. Here's the idea:
What are the prospects for multilateral trade law and for megaregional agreements such as the TTIP in the Trump era? Are existing tools in international economic law sufficient to address popular grievances and issues of global justice? In the context of U.S. policy discourse, what similarities and what differences characterize the Trump- and Sanders-esque critiques of trade and globalism? And on the other side of the Atlantic, what is the significance of Brexit and other anti-EU movements? This conference will address these questions as scholars from local law schools and others gather to debate the impact of the Trump Era policies on the global economy.
