Critical Raw Materials

Published 3 July 2024

Critical Raw Materials is the topic for this episode and looks at why they have become such an important part of our trade policy discussions. The conversation explores how to ensure that our trade policies enable a flow of these critical raw materials to the industries that need them; and whether we should be concerned that the increasingly fraught geopolitical situation might create serious problems for the emergence of a new lower carbon economy. Joining Chris Horseman on this episode are Sunayana Sasmal (University of Sussex/UKTPO), Tom Moerenhout (Columbia University) and Laura Kelly (IIED).
