A half-day conference on the EU's trade agenda, with EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, Peter Mandelson, and a high-level panel of politicians, stakeholders, and experts. In association with Policy Network and the European Commission's Office in the UK. One of the most powerful arguments in favor of British EU membership highlights the EU’s capacity to speak with one voice, and to conclude trade and investment deals for its 28 member states. Progressive voices across Europe also stress that together they can shape globalization in a more human way by helping to set future global norms. Yet, these arguments fail to convince the public, and the EU's capacity to deliver is under mounting scrutiny.

This event is organised by Policy Network in partnership with UCL European Institute and the European Commission's Office in the UK.
