Nuovo Studio del Centro Rossi-Doria sull'Accordo economico e commerciale globale UE-Canada (CETA)

The EU has always used bilateral agreements in relations with third countries but, in the last decade, in conjunction with the difficulties encountered by the Doha Round of the World Trade Organization, this type of agreement has represented the main instrument of the common commercial policy. This is a trend common to other countries as well, however the EU stands out for the number and depth of agreements reached.

This study is dedicated to the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) between the EU and Canada, currently applied in provisional mode pending ratification by the Member States. The goal is to try to clarify some controversial aspects that seem worthy of further study compared to the analysis already carried out by the Manlio Rossi Doria Center in collaboration with ITA (Italian Trade Agency)

Nuovo Studio del Centro Rossi-Doria sull'Accordo economico e commerciale globale UE-Canada (CETA)

The relationship between trade and climate change is very complex and linkages occur in several directions. There are both direct and indirect mechanisms and the global characteristic of climate-related impacts and responsibilities improves such complexity within the political debate. To this purpose, a deep knowledge of linkages across sectors and regions as well as within different policy spaces is a requirement for assessment exercises of climate and/or trade-related policies.
