Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement (AEUFTA) Conference

11/23/2021 07:00 pm 11/23/2021 09:00 pm Australia/Melbourne Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement (AEUFTA) Conference

Are you interested in the ongoing negotiations of the Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement? Join this discussion featuring researchers from around the world.

The Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement has been negotiated between Australia, the European Union and its Member states since 18 June 2018. During this lengthy and challenging process, impacted by the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU, the United States’ hesitations regarding the EU’s global strategy, and the global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, both parties have demonstrated a shared commitment to a positive trade agenda and the mutual benefits that come with boosting trade, investment, jobs, and economic growth. However, negotiation outcomes for some areas remain unknown.

The AEUFTA Conference aims to contribute to the passionate discussion on the key achievements and challenges of the AEUFTA negotiations, as well as to shed light on the likely future shape of commercial relations between Australia and the EU.

This event aims to not only make a relevant academic contribution, but also support the progress of the ongoing AEUFTA negotiations. The AEUFTA Conference will be of interest to practitioners, academics, business leaders, government officials, NGO representatives, journalists, students, and interested citizens.


Conference activities

The conference will feature 3 panels chaired by Professor Andrew Mitchell (Faculty of Law, Monash University), Hannes Schloemann (Director of the WTI Advisors) and Professor Marc Bungenberg (Europa-Institut, Saarland University).

The panels will cover a wide variety of topics, including the framework of bilateral free trade agreements, the policy relations between the EU and Australia, dispute settlement mechanisms, services, competition, subsidies, and government procurements.

The speakers include researchers and practitioners from both the European Union and Australia; namely Professor Michael Hahn, Professor Jürgen Bröhmer, Dr Charlotte Sieber-Gasser, Angshuman Hazarika, Philipp Reinhold, Mareike Fröhlich, and Simon Lacey.

The Australia-European Union Free Trade Agreement conference is hosted by Monash University, Saarland University and WTI Advisors.
