Center for Transnational Law and Business panel sparks lively discussion on inclusive measures and mechanisms
The USC Gould School of Law’s Center for Transnational Law and Business (CTLB) was invited to present at the World Trade Organization Public Forum in Geneva, Switzerland. The panel marks the second time in three years that members of CTLB shared their expertise at the WTO.
After a break owing to the pandemic, the WTO, which governs multi-lateral trade between nations, resumed its annual forum in late September under the theme “Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Recovery: Ambition to Action.” The CTLB presented a panel discussion titled “Ensuring Inclusive Trade and Environmental Measures,” focused on developing nations’ concerns about potentially discriminatory environment-related trade measures. Executive Director Brian Peck moderated the panel, which also featured Fangfei Dong, CTLB’s associate director for policy, research and programs; Julia Miranda Londoño, renowned environmentalist and congresswoman, Republic of Colombia and Karine Siegwart, senior policy advisor, International Policy Centre, International Union for Conservation of Nature.
