On 25 June 2021, Van Bael & Bellis partner Isabelle Van Damme spoke at the closing event of the academic year entitled “The Brussels effect and Brexit” organized by the Institute for European law at KU Leuven. The topic of Isabelle’s presentation was “The Brussels effect as a model of regulatory design”. Isabelle looked at the promotion of the EU’s internal and external interests which is increasingly driven by the regulation of global externalities: the so-called Brussels effect seen as a model of regulatory design rather than market-driven, visible in the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement. The other speaker was Prof. Anu Bradford, Columbia Law School, who opened the event and spoke on the topic of “The Brussels Effect: How the European Union Rules the World”.
