Upcoming Webinars

Wednesday 5 June 2024 - Trade: Choices and Lies

Speaker: Dmitry Grozoubinski, lead trainer of ExplainTrade and Executive Director at the Geneva Trade Platform

Chair: L. Alan Winters, former Co-Director of the Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP) and Emeritus Professor of Economics at the University of Sussex.

There are elections looming and hard choices to be made about everything from industrial policy to border carbon taxation. The temptation for politicians and candidates alike will be to minimise the trade-offs and hand-wave the complexity. In this webinar, Dmitry Grozoubinski, author of Why Politicians Lie About Trade, discusses these trade-offs and how we can all be better prepared consumers of political rhetoric around trade and trade policy.
