Conference description

This conference is held at a time when there is a danger that we are entering an era of retrenchment and fragmentation of globalization. In the wake of the 2008 global financial crisis, regulating the global economy rather than continuing the laissez faire approach has become a necessity. 

Regulation is understood broadly, in the sense of nontax, noncriminal public law where public bodies issue and enforce directives. The remit of global economy regulation exceeds the traditional trade law in goods and services to encompass areas such as financial markets and investment, antitrust, energy, and possibly also fiscal and monetary matters.

While this is arguably a matter of growing consensus among scholars, the focus of the conference will discuss reaching agreement on the structure of such regulation.
