The Jean Monnet TIISA NETWORK invites submissions for the 2021 Conference. In line with the Network’s interdisciplinary character, this includes papers in the fields of law, political science, business & economics.

Sponsored by Erasmus+, Hosted by AI-Econ Lab, Örebro University, Sweden; partner Ratio and Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum.

The project brings together leading academics and key institutions in domestic regulation and global governance of international services trade and investment flows to form a transnational consortia of academics across Europe, Australia and Asia. Together, these partners have the cumulative expertise, international perspectives and geographic reach to significantly advance research and teaching on EU trade policy and promote wider understanding of the process of globalisation and the role of the services sectors in our economies at a global level. The project takes a deliberately cross-disciplinary approach.
