Pettigrew, former senior minister in the federal cabinets of Jean Chrétien and Paul Martin and currently Canada’s Special Envoy for the Canada-European Union Trade Agreement (CETA) will be the keynote speaker for our 2018 Annual Event. Having contributed to crafting the Washington consensus while in government, only to witness it undermined with recent developments in the US, UK, Pettigrew`s talk will bring a unique perspective:

“The future of globalization in the emerging world (dis)order”
