Conference on the Shifting Commercial Dynamics of the Atlantic Basin
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Organized by the Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies
In the framework of its partnership with the Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies, OCP Policy Center will join the second conference organized by the Network to present a paper on intra-regional trade in Africa. The conference will be tackling the commercial dynamics of the Atlantic Basin and will gather policy makers, civil society representatives and the wider public to address continuities and changes in commercial connectivity across the Atlantic space and offer learning opportunities from mutual experience with sub-regional integration efforts such as the EU Single Market.
About the Jean Monnet Network
The Jean Monnet Network on Atlantic Studies is an initiative across the four Atlantic continents by 10 leading EU-oriented centres, many with Jean Monnet professors and based in countries identified by the EU as key ”strategic partners,” to collaborate in interdisciplinary exploration of three emerging pan-Atlantic themes of particular relevance to the EU—energy; commercial interactions; and pan-Atlantic challenges to human security. Each activity will engage next-generation and established scholars in collaborative research that will drive the Network’s engagement with policymakers, civil society representatives, and wider publics. Each will incorporate comparative approaches to regional integration. The Network’s balanced North-South composition ensures greater synergies and exchange of experience among established and rising powers. Dedicated sessions will be held for next-generation educators. Working papers and peer-reviewed publications will be fully accessible open source materials. Data will be incorporated into updated visualizations for the online “Atlas of the Atlantic.” The Network will employ social media to sustain the ATLANTIC 500 virtual community of 500 mid-level stakeholders. The Network will position members individually and together as a go-to resource on the contemporary role of the EU in the wider Atlantic space and will advance comparative knowledge of regional integration processes in Europe and Atlantic continents.
