Geneva Trade and Development Workshop



The Geneva Trade and Development Workshop was initiated in 2008 as a joint project of the Graduate Institute’s Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the University of Geneva and the World Trade Organization.

Its aim is to allow academics and researchers in the Geneva region working in the area of trade and development to share work and ideas as well as improve their contact with researchers outside the region. By providing a forum for discussion, the workshop supports high-quality research and facilitates outreach to policy makers.
