Iulianna Romanchyshyna organised a PhD seminar at the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies on the issue of sustainable development

The seminar was aimed at clarifying the EU policy direction as regards sustainable development within its trade agenda by providing a comparative analysis of selected TSD standards, taking particular account of the EU-Korea, as the first “new generation” FTA to include a TSD chapter, and the ensuing trade agreements with Colombia, Peru and Ecuador, Central America, Singapore, Vietnam, Canada, Japan and Mexico, as well as recent strategic EU Commission documents on TSD reform. The goal of the presentation is to get a better understanding of the EU’s policy on TSD and its possible implications for the effective implementation of global social and environmental standards.
