Workshop "International Trade: The New Normal"

The Banque de France, CEPII, CEPR and University of Surrey are jointly organising a workshop to explore economic dimensions of the “new normal” environment of international trade, which has been severely impacted by recent events and associated rises in trade costs. Increases in tariffs and sanctions (e.g. U.S-China trade war), globalisation backlash, institutional challenges (e.g. Brexit, WTO), and Covid-19 are imposing a rethinking of multilateral trade and the way that firms organise production across borders.
The workshop will take place at the Banque de France’s headquarters in Paris and online on two half-days 10-11 June 2021.
