The conference will take place from the 5th of April, till the 12th of April. Participants will arrive in St. Gallen on the 5th, and we will travel to Geneva on the 10th.
The topic for the Model WTO 2019 conference is the Reform of the WTO. The discourse surrounding this topic has been rapidly developing. With the WTO dispute settlement system facing an imminent deadlock, and with rising trade tensions between major trading partners, the WTO is facing an existential crisis. Director General Roberto Azevêdo has emphasized the importance of a dialogue for this issue. ‘The state of this organization is an issue in which everyone has an interest, so it is important for all members to engage — whatever your perspectives may be.’
As it is of global interest to discuss the current and future state of WTO, the 22nd Model WTO Edition will give participants the task of discussing the issue. With a focus on the negotiation and litigation aspects of the debate, the final goal of our conference will be to negotiate an Agreement on the Reform of the World Trade Organisation.
The committees are yet to be finalised, but will focus on the litigation and negotiation aspects of the debate. We will announce all information on our Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin. Follow us for any updates.
