Debate Café: Can trade promote democracy?

A lot of research is done on the economic impact of trade, but much less on its political consequences.
In this Debate Café we will discuss the broader foreign-policy implications of trade and go into questions like:

Is it morally wrong to trade with nondemocratic countries? Are democracies any good at spreading democracy? Do economic sanctions work in relation to non-democratic, dictatorial regimes?

The Debate Café is a meeting place for scientists, other experts and university students. It covers important recent developments in science and society. Everyone can join the debate and exchange views about current issues of the world with a panel of experts.

This Debate Café is organised by SCOPE, study association of the School of Business and Economics and Studium Generale.


This event is a walk-in event.
