Event description

Description

In 2015 and 2016, two trade-related battles were waged between Congress and the administration simultaneously—and with dramatically different coalitions on each side of the Obama Administration. What does the EXIM battle tell us about the Republican split on trade? Where were the political fault lines? What does the EXIM battle tell us about how to frame the broader trade debate going forward? Likewise, what did TPP reveal about the Democratic split on trade? How did the differences form? And what does TPP teach us about the politics of trade going forward—will there ever be another free trade agreement approved by Congress?
