Commerce International : La Nouvelle Norme

La Banque de France, le CEPII, le CEPR et l’Université du Surrey organisent conjointement une conférence sur le thème : « Commerce international, La Nouvelle Norme », les 10 et 11 juin 2021.

The Banque de France, CEPII, CEPR and University of Surrey are jointly organising a workshop to explore economic dimensions of the “new normal” environment of international trade, which has been severely impacted by recent events and associated rises in trade costs. Increases in tariffs and sanctions (e.g. U.S-China trade war), globalisation backlash, institutional challenges (e.g. Brexit, WTO), and Covid-19 are imposing a rethinking of multilateral trade and the way that firms organise production across borders. Empirical as well as theoretical contributions that analyse the consequences of this new normal situation with an emphasis on a policy perspective are welcome.
The workshop will take place at the Banque de France’s headquarters in Paris on two half-days 10-11 June 2021. The programme will include seven academic papers, including a Guest Lecture by Gene Grossman (Princeton and CEPR), a keynote presentation by Paola Conconi (ECARES and CEPR). A Policy Round Table with Lionel Fontagné (Banque de France and CEPII), Beata Javorcik (ERBD, University of Oxford and CEPR), Marion Jensen (OECD) and Robert Koopman (WTO and CEPR) and moderated by Martin Sandbu (Financial Times). Participants will also be invited to a dinner with French policymakers on 10th June, where Sébastian Jean (CEPII) will give a dinner speech.
Papers should be submitted no later than 28th February. Decisions are expected to be communicated by end of March. Organisers should be able to cover travel and accommodation costs for Europe-based authors of accepted contributions (to be confirmed with acceptance decision), in accordance with the CEPR Travel Guidelines which will be circulated at a later date. We recommend that you hold off making any travel arrangements until further information has been given. 
Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 and travel restrictions, the workshop may become a hybrid workshop or a completely virtual workshop depending on the situation closer to the time.
