14th December 2022: EU Trade Policy and China: Legal Framework and State of Play
The EU and China are major trading partners, but they have not concluded any major bilateral agreement on trade and investment. In December 2020, they announced the conclusion of negotiations in principle on a Comprehensive Agreement on Investment. Since then, however, bilateral relations have cooled down and the ratification of the Agreement or further negotiations on related matters were put on hold indefinitely. The lecture provides an overview of the EU treaty-making competence under Common Commercial Policy and reviews the state of play of EU-China trade relations.
Speaker: Dr Alberto Miglio, Assistant Professor of European Union Law, Department of Law, University of Torino, Faculty Member, Center for Transnational Legal Studies, London Lungo Dora Siena, 100 - 10153 Torino – Italy
Chair: Dr Alessandro Spano, Lecturer in EU Law and Chinese Law, Faculty of Laws and European & International Social & Political Studies (EISPS) Co-director, UCL China Centre for Politics, Law and Culture
