Global economics: trade, investment and development

In an increasingly multi-polar world economy, this research area aims to contribute to a better understanding of the need for – and design of – multilateral economic cooperation and global governance of national economic policies for sustainable development. The focus of research projects is primarily on international trade, investment and economic development questions and the operation of global institutions such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and the G20, as well as important transnational and regional cooperation initiatives such as the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and the pursuit of the Sustainable Development Goals.
