Conversations on Europe: Free Trade or Protectionism?: Isolationism amidst Globalization

In this installment of the European Studies Center's award-winning series of virtual roundtables, a panel of experts discusses the mid-2016 political and popular debates over free trade and trade agreements in the US and Europe. Why have NAFTA and TPP become such political hot potatoes in the 2016 election cycle? What accounts for popular hostility to TTIP in Germany and other European nations? How did trade deals impact the Brexit vote and what impact will that vote have on on-going and future trade negotiations?

Moderated by Allyson Delnore, Interim Director of the ESC, the panel includes Alasdair Young (Georgia Tech University), Elvire Fabry (Jacque Delors Institute), and David Cleeton (Illinois State University).
