Workshop "Economic Diplomacy: From Domestic to International Politics"
University of Oxford
St John's College, Dolphin Seminar Room
28 May 2010, 3.00pm
The fast pace of the economic globalization process in the last decades has led the European Union and Member States to face new challenges. One of the most important themes is how the EU should proceed to have an active role in order to be relevant in the world market. The common external trade policy does not imply that each country can not use its own economic and commercial instruments in order to get a larger share in international trade and investment. At a time of huge competition and arrival of new emerging countries, economic diplomacy seems to be an important tool for countries to deal with the new world economic environment. This workshop will discuss the specific features of Portugal's economic diplomacy framed in its foreign policy and as a public policy in the context of the adaptability of the European Union's foreign policy to a changing world.
