Nicolas Lamp joined the Faculty of Law at Queen’s University in 2014. In 2020, he was cross-appointed to the Queen’s School of Policy Studies. Since 2019, he has also been the Director of the Annual Queen’s Institute on Trade Policy, a professional training course for Canadian trade officials. Prior to joining Queen’s, Associate Professor Lamp worked as a Dispute Settlement Lawyer at the Appellate Body Secretariat of the World Trade Organization, where he advised the Members of the Appellate Body on legal issues arising in appellate proceedings under the WTO’s dispute settlement mechanism. Associate Professor Lamp received his PhD in Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science in 2013. His current research focuses on competing narratives about the winners and losers from economic globalization. His co-authored book (with Anthea Roberts) on Six Faces of Globalization: Who Wins, Who Loses, and Why It Matters has just been published by Harvard University Press. Twitter: @nicolas_lamp

The book argues that we cannot understand the current debates about economic globalization without an analytical framework that allows us to distinguish the main narratives that compete in the debate. The book maps the main narratives that are driving the pushback against economic globalization, including narratives about corporate power, Sino-US great power competition, resilience, and sustainability, and examines how they relate to each other. It then shows how the narratives allow us to appreciate the key challenges of our time – from the COVID-19 pandemic to climate change and the future of economic globalization – in all their kaleidoscopic complexity.
