Good Global Governance: Transatlantic Relations’ endeavoured to propose best practices in global governance, focussing upon trade and data protection and administrative law procedures. Participants were asked to consider: What is the place of the transatlantic relationship in modelling good practice? How does cooperation through institutional forms e.g. EU-US Trade and Technology Council impact upon shifts in good global governance? What is its impact on the WTO? How can we understand the place of civil society in the evolving transatlantic relations, e.g. putting labour rights more centrally in trade? What is its impact upon multilateralism? How has EU law and international law evolved in the post-megaregs era? It focusses upon ameliorations in practice, examining two key studies of global governance, trade and data flows. It possibly focuses upon the practices of the EU and US in international negotiations in trade and data. Transparency and openness practices have the capacity to shape future direction of global governance. How do debates within sub-disciplines inform global governance e.g. international economic law or international human rights law? How salient or progressive from the multilateral or transnational perspective is the transatlantic focus given shifts towards workers’ rights in US trade policy and Europe’s Green Deal? The West is much maligned in the reimagination of international trade/ human rights and so how does the contemporary West respond, lead or advance? As trade agreements broaden and contemporary agreements on data advance considerably eg DEA albeit non-binding, it throws open the question about good regional practices. Do close and proximate efforts at regulation or standards eg EU-US TTC prompt better multilateralism? What are its metrics? Says who? Is a wholly digitised world post-COVID-19 a more open environment to consider global governance? Does openness and digitisation provide a useful metric here?
