The course is in Spanish and consists of four modules. A first module about the EU institutional architecture; a second module about the Common Commercial Policy and the EU external trade relations; a third module on the role of the EU at the WTO and the latest developments on the Trade Facilitation Agreement and the TRIPS Agreement; and a final module on how to negotiate an FTA with the EU.
