International Trade : Who makes the rules? 13 October 2009

Bishopsgate Institute, 13 October 2009, 7.00pm.
Free, no advance booking required.
====================================================
Over the last decade international trade talks have successively stalled, been deferred due to immovable impasse, seen stalemate bring meetings to abrupt ends, and finally all-out collapse.

Bringing together historical perspectives with the experience of traders and legislators, the event asks how democratic is the making of multilateral trade agreements? To whom, are international trade legislators accountable? What values underpin international trade law? How do these values resonate within the UK and around the world? 

This event brings together historians, international trade policy makers, monitors and advisors with traders and negotiators to talk about international trade law in the past and present.
===================================================
Speakers include Razeen Sally (International political economist, London School of Economics), Frank Trentmann (Historian, Birkbeck) and Alan Beattie (World Trade Editor, Financial Times).
This event is part of the series, ‘Knowing the Past, Shaping the Future: History and the Making of Public Policy’, organised by the Raphael Samuel History Centre (University of East London, Birkbeck College, Bishopsgate Institute), in partnership with ‘History & Policy’ (Cambridge, Institute of Historical Research, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine).
