In this summer school course the focus will be on the recent and controversial issues the EU's trade law and policy is confronted with. For example, the response of the EU to the globally growing protectionism, finding a balance between free trade and non-economic values, conclusion and enforcement of bilateral trade agreements or tackling the controversy attached to the investor – state dispute settlement (ISDS).

The European Union (EU) is the world’s largest trading power whereas the volume of global trade is greater than ever before. Since the establishment of the European communities, the external trade policy of the EU (officially called "the Common Commercial Policy") has been a major field of EU external relations and one of the Union’s most successful policies which allowed the block to speak with one voice on matters of its external trade. However, the EU trade policy faces a range of challenges in a quickly changing global environment. In this summer school course the focus will be on the recent and controversial issues the EU trade law and policy is confronted with such as its response to the growing protectionism and applying Trade Defence Instruments, finding a balance between free trade and non-economic values, conclusion and enforcement of bilateral trade agreements, or tackling the controversy attached to the investor – state dispute settlement (ISDS).
