For the past seven years, the Canada Europe Transatlantic Dialogue (CETD) has been examining different aspects of the public dimensions of Canada – EU relations. This project, funded by the SSHRC, brings together Canadian scholars from seven universities with European scholars interested in this topic.

Canadian and European students enrolled in law programs at the first and graduate levels or students working in related disciplines are invited to submit papers.

This seminar will be held at McGill University on Friday, February 3, 2017. Eight students will present papers on various aspects of the general theme, including two students from Europe who will address European perspectives.

Proposals will be welcomed such issues as the CETD Investment Tribunal and other aspects of investor-state arbitration under CETA,  the different forms of public dispute settlement set out in CETA as well as potential WTO disputes. Proposals on disputes under related trade agreements will also be considered.
