On 1 and 2 December 2022, a seminar entitled "Current Challenges in European and International Economic Law: European Foreign Trade Law and Rule of Law" was held under the direction of Prof. Dr. Marc Bungenberg.
Interested participants from Saarland University, Lausanne University and the Vienna University of Economics and Business met together on Lake Geneva to discuss, among other things, the various instruments for protecting human rights, the environment and culture in foreign trade, the European economic sanctions against Russia, dealing with competition-distorting subsidies from third countries, investment screening and the EU-UK free trade agreement. The 13 presentations were followed by lively discussions on the respective topics. In addition to a visit to the Christmas market, a joint cheese fondue meal was on the agenda. All in all, we had a wonderful time in Lausanne with great presentations and interesting discussions in a beautiful ambience.
