Real threats to the international economic and political order are on the horizon. An ongoing trade war that cuts across borders; a withdrawal from international economic and political institutions; and a move toward protectionism in countries that once promoted free trade, combine to create the perfect storm of threats to the global system. This short seminar will unpack the fundamental concepts that underlie the international economic system, from the Bretton Woods Institutions to the World Trade Organization to the hodgepodge of free trade agreements in place today. We will discuss the legal regime within which we trade and enforce trade rules and policies. And we will unpack key cases and treaties that inform our understanding of the purpose for an international economic regime. The goal of the seminar is to place current economic and political events around trade in legal context and to deepen our awareness of the role of trade institutions in maintaining the liberal democratic order we enjoy today.

Requirements: Have finished or being currently studying an undergraduate degree.

Language: English.

Este curso hace parte del portafolio de materias de pregrado y posgrado de la Universidad  abiertas a todo público.

Al participar en este curso podrás vivir la experiencia Uniandina, acceder a contenidos de calidad, tomar  clases con estudiantes regulares, acceder al sistema de bibliotecas de Uniandes y participar en las actividades culturales que esta Universidad te ofrece.


This is a live course that will be delivered over two weeks, 15-hours per week. Because the classroom time is limited, students will be expected to come to class prepared to discuss the assigned readings for each class. The class will be run as a lecture/ discussion with group projects and presentations. The Socratic method will be utilized to draw out class discussion and shared insights. Students are expected to engage thoughtfully and should not expect a “lecture” for the entire class period. In addition, group presentations at the end of the first week will allow students to develop a deeper understanding of compliance cases and to forge their research into an effective class presentation.
