Non-resident Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics; former European Commissioner for Trade and Home Affairs


Guillaume Van der Loo
Research Fellow, European Policy Centre

EPC Talks Geopolitics aims to engage globally renowned speakers, in an interactive conversation on relevant geopolitical issues.
Cecilia Malmström served as European Commissioner for Trade from 2014 to 2019 and European Commissioner for Home Affairs from 2010 to 2014. She is currently a non-resident senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics and is a Visiting Professor at the School of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Gothenburg. As European Commissioner for Trade, Cecilia Malmström represented the EU in the World Trade Organization (WTO) and other international trade bodies. She was also responsible for the European Commission’s ‘Trade for all’ Strategy and negotiating bilateral trade agreements with EU strategic partners, including Canada, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, Vietnam, and Mercosur.
In an online exchange with Guillaume Van der Loo, EPC-Egmont Research Fellow, Cecilia Malmström will reflect on the challenges for the EU’s trade policy in a shifting geopolitical landscape. The discussion will focus on the key priorities for the EU’s trade agenda, including the renewed transatlantic partnership with the Biden administration, the strengthening of the multilateral rules-based system for international trade ahead of the 12th WTO Ministerial Conference and China’s trade-distorting practices. She will also seek to shed light on how the EU could – or should – use trade policy to advance its foreign policy goals such as tackling climate change and promoting sustainable development and human rights.
