One of the most important academic events of its kind, the G2 Conference annually convenes practitioners, WTO Secretariat staff and Members, and NGO stakeholders to discuss the status and future of international economic law, and its intersection with regional developments. The Conference typically alternates between Washington, D.C. and Geneva. However, due to the pandemic, we decided to move the programming online in 2021. Please find the video recordings of the G2 Conference in three parts below.
The combination of the COVID-pandemic, election of a new WTO DG, a new US Administration, as well as other developments in the world of trade, call for a reinvigorated WTO. In this spirit, we made attracting and elevating new, younger perspectives with fresh eyes and bold ideas on the WTO’s challenges and opportunities the goal of the G2 conference in 2021. Our focal point was a three day Legal Hackathon for students from around the world, on: ‘How to Make the WTO Fit for Future Generations of Trade’. The most innovative proposals were featured on the day of the conference and can be found here.
