Ideas:
“  My main interest presently is Climate Change "differentiation" (COP) vs "non-discrimination" (WTO). But I am still excited to work on (almost) all "trade and" topics like - Global Food Security vs Obesity and Malnutrition (trade rules favouring malnutrition or preventing health taxes or consumer information)- Human Rights and Employment ("decent" vs "any" work vs "forced labour")- Water (allocation biases resulting from cash crop export priorities)- Brexit, TPPA/CPTPP, NAFTA/USMCA, TTIP and other issues of regionalism, Trends to unilateralism. And, of course, Dispute Settlement (mainly WTO and its shortcomings). Add a couple of TBT and SPS overdrives, and you'll say I am overextended. I'll say that's the advantage of the old generalist!  ”
