7&8 July: Joint Seminar University of Groningen-Academia Sinica (Taipei) on 'Diplomacy and law in the settlement of trade disputes'
Diplomacy and law in the settlement of trade disputes - Refining and applying conceptual tools in the context of EU-Asia relations
This will be the second meeting with our colleagues from Taiwan in the context of a project that tries to figure out how the EU chooses between diplomatic and legal strategies, or a combination of both, when managing disputes with its trading partners in Asia. The project brings together political scientists and lawyers in an interdisciplinary effort to define a conceptual framework for analysing trade disputes and to apply it to concrete case studies. After a first round of discussions on draft papers in Groningen last September the ambition of this follow-up event (organised in Taipei) is to get additional feedback on the revised papers, broaden the scope of the project by adding further contributors and enhance conceptual coherence in view of publication.
