Course Description

This course focuses on creating a better understanding of current trade issues and how they affect decision-making among policymakers and other stakeholders in client countries. Three areas in particular present novel obstacles and challenges, but also new opportunities.

The three targeted areas are: Non-Tariff Measures, Food Staples, and Trade in Services.

In each section we will examine the state of the field, explore a set of actions we recommend for overcoming these challenges (usually through a country case study), and present available datasets and resources for you to apply to your own work in the future.

Course Methodology

The entire course is delivered online and intended to be taken as an on-demand learning experience that can be completed in 90 minutes in one sitting or more. Content is arranged in the form of slides, videos, animations, interactive exercises, and more.
