SIEL 2023: VBB participates in the 8th Biennial Global Conference
The Society of International Economic Law (SIEL) is a membership organisation aimed at promoting global discussion and understanding of topical issues in international economic law. On 12-14 July 2023, SIEL held its eighth biennial conference in Bogotá, Colombia. VBB is proud to be a longstanding sponsor of the event.
Against the overall conference theme of international economic law in times of geo-political confrontation and geo-economic fragmentation, international trade partner Isabelle Van Damme contributed to a roundtable discussion on EU industrial policy in the 21st century and co-organised the conference. Fellow international trade team members Tetyana Payova and Victor Crochet also participated in the event: Tetyana moderated a panel on the EU CBAM and climate clubs and Victor presented on a panel on geopolitics and trade, discussing EU critical raw materials policies.
