In this new context, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the American Institute for Contemporary German Studies at Johns Hopkins University are collaborating on a series of online events examining key trade policy challenges. These include agreeing a joint approach to China’s economic behavior through a better balance between engagement and enforcement; reforming the World Trade Organization through new rules in areas like subsidies and state-owned enterprises and reviving its dispute settlement system; and reconciling trade and climate policy goals through the WTO, supply chain strategy, and a carbon border adjustment mechanism.
