Prof. Tomer Broude conducted a course on ‘International Regulation of Trade and Investment’ for the LL.M. students of Gujarat Maritime University.

The course conducted by him was centralized on various important topics such as:

  • Legal frameworks governing global business and international trade and investment relations between states.
  • Fundamental questions of trade and investment policy and international political economy.
  • Non-trade policy effects of international trade regulation and investment protection, in fields such as public morals, health and the environment.
  • Study of developments with respect to the ongoing ‘trade war’ between the US and (primarily) China, WTO reform, the increasing use of security exceptions and Brexit.

The highlight of the course was that the students were divided into groups and each group was given a separate topic to research upon and present in the last class. The course indoctrinated in-depth knowledge of International Trade in the students.
