Our former participants say:

I got a bird's eye view on the international trade and the EU's policy, exactly what I needed.”
“A much better and deeper understanding of the WTO and EU trade policy, including some practical examples and a look behind the scenes.”
“Allows to understand and gain knowledge about the basic principles and functioning of the WTO and EU trade policy, which will be useful in the day-to-day professional tasks.”

The trainers

The sessions are delivered by high-level speakers from the expert network of the College of Europe, which comprises academics and practitioners with a sound experience in and/or with the EU institutions, and the World Trade Organisation.

“The Trade Policy course is a great forum to talk about the latest developments in EU trade policy. It is great to work with highly motivated and skillful professionals in the beautiful setting of the College of Europe in Bruges. The caliber of the participants makes the course discussions very informative and intense. A real pleasure to be involved in this course as instructor.”
