World trade negotiations in the Doha development round have stalled. More than 120 countries have antitrust laws but there is no international framework. Meanwhile, corruption persists as a major obstacle to economic development. A panel of experts will discuss how trade, competition and corruption impact poverty in developing countries, and how we can move ahead on Thurs., Sept. 25, 6:00pm. at the NYU School of Law (Greenberg Lounge, Vanderbilt Hall, 40 Washington Square South).
Speakers at the event include: Jagdish Bhagwati, University Professor, Columbia University; Eleanor Fox, Walter J. Derenberg Professor of Trade Regulation, New York University School of Law; Kevin Davis, Beller Family Professor of Business Law, New York University School of Law; and Pradeep Mehta, Founder and Secretary General of CUTS International.
Merit Janow, dean of the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University, will serve as moderator. Trevor Morrison, dean and Clarence D. Ashley Professor of Law at NYU School of Law, and Peter Henry, dean of the Leonard N. Stern School of Business at NYU, will make welcome remarks.
The program will celebrate the 30th anniversary of CUTS, a leading global NGO that does pioneering work on markets and development.
