The May edition of the Brussels Agenda features, among others, a brief analysis of the new proposal on the European Pillar of Social Rights and an article on the Hungary’s new higher education law. The In Focus edition brings you in-depth analyses from our network of experts in trade policy. We are delighted to feature an article from Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom in which she outlines the EU trade talks with Mexico and the EU’s future approach to trade policy. Laurence Ankersmit from Client Earth brings us insightful details of the CETA crisis in the Belgian province of Wallonia. Peter Balas from Covington and Burling discusses the trade policy implications of Brexit. Further in the newsletter, Iain MacVay and Jorge Miranda from King & Spalding provide a thorough outline of the EU’s trade defence instruments (TDIs) reform. Vanessa Naish and Hannah Ambrose from Herbert Smith Freehills further discuss the relationship between the EU’s investment court system and the wider EU legal order. Additionally, we prepared our own ABC of trade.

Finally, we welcome Stuart Brown, trainee solicitor, along with Arfah Chaudry and Peter Boyle, interns, who have recently joined the joint Brussels Office. They will be taking over responsibility for editing and producing the monthly Brussels Agenda.
