Implementing CETA: A Preliminary Report By Dr. Robert Finbow
This overview is based on the preliminary findings of an ongoing project on the implementation of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union (CETA), and the author’s presentation on the implementation of CETA at the CETA and Progressive Trade Agreements: What It Means for the EU and Canada workshop at the University of Antwerp on May 22, 2018. The author was awarded Erasmus+ funding for the project CETA Implementation and Implications Project (CIIP). The project launched with a workshop at Dalhousie University in May 2018 entitled CETA Implementation: The Next Steps, which gave participants from academia, government and stakeholder groups opportunity to present their original research and engage with colleagues on the Canada-EU CETA agreement. In 2019, a conference hosted by Dalhousie University will invite up to 50 participants to present their research on CETA implementation and the implications of the agreement for legislation, regulation and public policy. These events will be accompanied by the publication of papers to disseminate the analysis and spread information on the implementation of CETA from multiple scholarly and analytical perspectives (English)
