Congratulations to my Master Student Carlotta Manz for being awarded the 2020 Reinhard & Raja Klarmann Foundation Award for the best thesis in the field of international and multicultural business law!
Every two years, we do support and motive master program law students at the University of Lausanne with the Reinhard & Raja Klarmann Foundation – Award for the best thesis in the field of international and multicultural business law.
Carlotta Manz wrote a Master’s thesis in International Economic Law under the supervision of Professor Andreas Ziegler (Faculty of Law, University of Lausanne) and she was extremely honored to be awarded the Reinhard & Raja Klarmann Award. Her research discusses the compatibility of the measures adopted by the United States in 2018 aiming to increase the tariffs on a range of imported aluminum and steel products with the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT 1994) of the World Trade Organization (WTO). In the light of the tensions that marked the relations between the United States and many of its trading partner and the numerous requests for consultations at the Dispute Settlement Body of the WTO, the thesis analyses in particular if the measures in question could be justified in application of the security clause provided by Article XXI(b) GATT 1994.
