Globalization and World Economy Program

The program on globalization and world economy analyzes current developments in world trade. It deals with both the multilateral landscape of trade within the framework of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and bilateral trade relations.

The program focuses on European and American trade policy, as well as transatlantic cooperation on trade. Furthermore, it examines the role of informal forums, such as the G7 and G20, and their effectiveness in influencing trade-related issues.

Key topics:

  • The WTO and its possible reform – especially against the background of current US trade policy under President Donald Trump
  • Transatlantic relations on trade and investments, as well as a possible trade agreement between the EU and US
  • The escalating trade dispute between the US and China and its impact on the EU
