Welcome! The aim of the course is to introduce students to the exciting, dynamic world of international trade rules. This course will focus on the multilateral trading system: its principles, rules, practices, and institutions, and the debates which attend each. Trade is a vital driver of development. In addition to your doctrinal studies, our class will grapple with the broader political and economic contexts that shape contemporary challenges with trade. We will draw from different theories to build our lenses into the future of trade multilateralism and the growing interdependence of our globalised economy.
