The Future of Global Trade

Third Event of Joint Speaker Series at Freie Universität Berlin and Indiana University on January 26, 2017, in Berlin-Kreuzberg

№ 006/2017 from Jan 11, 2017

On January 26, 2017, legal scholars from Freie Universität Berlin and Indiana University in the US will discuss the future of global trade. The discussion will take place as part of a joint speaker series being organized by Freie Universität and Indiana University during the 2016/2017 academic year. Five events are being held in Indiana and in Berlin, where scholars from both universities will address issues of international politics in English. The events are public, and admission is free.

Legal scholar Dr. Steffen Hindelang, a professor of law at Freie Universität Berlin, and David P. Fidler, a professor of law at Indiana University Bloomington, will discuss the future of global trade and whether in light of current developments it is likely that more free trade agreements will be reached or rather a return to increased protectionism can be expected. Dr. Stefan Mair, a member of the executive board of the Federation of German Industries e. V. (BDI), will moderate the discussion and the subsequent question and answer session with the audience.

The Joint Speaker Series of Indiana University and Freie Universität Berlin was designed to promote joint research and scholarly exchange as well as to initiate public debates. This is the third event of the series and will take place in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The fourth one will also take place in Berlin at the end of April at Freie Universität Berlin.
