International Colloquium on Restoring Trust in Trade in Honour of Peter Van den Bossche
On 17 December the Law Faculty of Maastricht University hosted an international colloquium entitled “Restoring Trust in Trade” in honour of Professor Peter Van den Bossche, former Appellate Body Member (2009-2017).
This colloquium focused on a key challenge facing the international trading system, namely the rapidly eroding trust in trade liberalisation and economic integration, as embodied in the rules of the World Trade Organization and the European Union.
The well-attended colloquium brought together friends of Peter Van den Bossche, including his mentor, colleagues and students to pay tribute to his invaluable contribution to the evolution and understanding of WTO law as a rules-based system eliciting trust. Slides and video recordings of the presentations are available here. The contributions are compiled in a Liber Amicorum published by Hart.
The organizers Denise Prevost, Iveta Alexovicova and Jens Hillebrand Pohl, warmly thank the speakers and participants for their contribution to the success of the event.
