INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND INVESTMENT LAW IN THE POST-COVID-19 WORLD?
To contain and mitigate the spread of COVID-19 many countries have taken emergency measures, including diverting medical supplies and equipment from manufacturers and imposing export bans on medical supplies and medicines. Has the Covid-19 pandemic created trade protectionism for public health purposes? What implications does this have for the existing international trade legal order? Recognized experts in the panel will examine questions concerning such export bans in relation to the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other Free Trade Agreement trade rules and other pressing issues that will have impacts on the international trade legal order.
