Regional Trade Agreements: Fall 2020
Mexico - 12 August 2019
Students will analyze legal aspects of Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) in their historical, economic and political contexts. The principal topics include: trade in goods, trade in services, trade remedies (subsidies and dumping), foreign investment regulation, trade & environment (with an emphasis on climate change), intellectual property rights, and dispute settlement. The foundation of the course will focus on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA & USMCA), and the course will compare NAFTA approaches to more recent developments in other RTAs, such as the CPTPP.
