Event description

Description

Who should attend?
This course is open to anyone interested in learning about the impact of international trade on the global economy. Are you interested in finding out how trade structures affect your life and those in the Global South? Are you motivated to learn how you can make a difference by campaigning to change these structures? Then the Comhlámh Trade Justice Course is for you!

What is the course about?
This six evening course, organised by the Comhlámh Trade Justice Group, will introduce you to, and demystify, the world of global trade. In the current economic climate we all feel the impact of international trade on our lives. The course aims to get you up to speed on some of the key issues, perspectives and debate around trade, and reassure you that you don’t need a degree in economics to have an opinion on these issues!


What topics will it cover?
We will discuss and debate questions such as the following:
How does global trade work? What role do Ireland, the EU, and the WTO play? What impacts are they having? What does sustainable development and trade look like? What is the difference between Free Trade, Fair Trade and Trade Justice? How are new generation trade deals like CETA going to affect people in Ireland? What trading alternatives are possible? How can we work towards global trade justice?


The course will use a range of methods, including campaigning activities, and will be lively, interactive and participatory. Speakers on the course are leading activists, experts and campaigners for trade justice. The course is introductory, not academic.

How much does it cost?

€30 Comhlámh member
€60 non-Comhlámh member
