The Linklaters International Trade Practice has launched a regular blog that will look at a wide range of topics that span the area of international trade including Brexit and its impact on the UK’s international trade position, trade wars, tariffs and trade disputes.

As well as contributing content themselves, the core Linklaters team are collaborating with guest writers from a range of academic institutions. Contributors come from across the world and include researchers from the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, the European University Institute in Florence, KU Lueven and the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

As a result of the various perspectives, the blog content is assured to be both varied and insightful. To give a feel for what to expect, early posts will tackle the following questions:

- Is GDPR compliant with WTO law?

- What are the options for a UK state aid regime after Brexit?

- How does the EU current thinking on trade in services with the UK compare with being in the single market?

 - What are Trump’s priorities and strategies in renegotiations of NAFTA and KORUS (the Korea-US FTA)?
