It marks the celebration of the 100th meeting of the Working Group on the Law of International Economic Relations. The group, which was founded in the 1980s, consists of academics and practitioners who work in the field of the European Union’s trade and external economic policy and its connections to international economic law, including the law of the WTO, the IMF and the world-wide rules on international investment.
On this occasion, the Working Group has decided to  organize a public event. We have  invited two speakers, an academic and a practitioner, Professor Piet Eeckhout of the University College London and Frank Hoffmeister of the European Commission, who each have also been and are still active in practice and academia, to speak on the future of the Union’s Trade Policy from different perspectives, followed by debate. Chatham House rules will apply.
