Building a U.S. Trade Enforcement Agenda that Works


Please join the CSIS Simon Chair for a keynote conversation with former U.S. Trade Representative Ambassador Michael Froman followed by two panel discussions with a range of U.S. experts.

The current system of trade enforcement is under stress from market-distorting policies in state-capitalist economies like China; inadequacies in the toolkit of trade remedies in the United States; and weaknesses in the WTO dispute settlement system, which combined have led to increased skepticism of the merits of free trade and growing support for more protectionist policies.

The panelists will explore both the causes of the aforementioned problems facing free trade today, as well as possible solutions.

This event is made possible by the generous support of Alcoa Foundation.
