U.S. and European Union (EU) Environmental and Trade Relations


Program Description:

This presentation will address how for too long, transatlantic "high" politics and scholarship have focused on security, trade and investment patterns – neglecting others. There are a host of regulatory issues related to environmental quality, agriculture, public health, food safety, stem cells, and a host of technical standards, and it is increasingly difficult to separate these issues from security and trade issues – or from “domestic” politics and policy making.
