As trade policies around the world remain hotly debated in public discourse, what is the future of free trade? Is there a global movement toward protectionism? Join the News & Views committee as we welcome Prof. Gabrielle Marceau, Senior Counsellor in the Legal Affairs Division of the World Trade Organization, for a discussion of some of President Trump’s trade policies, their implications for the U.S. and the global economy, and how international trade will be impacted by a climate of free-trade skepticism across the globe.

Lunch will be provided.

News and Views is a student-led event series on news of the day that provides UChicago students with the opportunity to hear from prominent Chicago-Based academic, civic, and media leaders in a meaningful conversation.
