As the director of the TRADE (Trade and Development) research entity, I extend my warmest greetings to you.
Take your time to browse through our website as it offers a wealth of information on our research partnerships and outputs, our Master's and PhD programmes in economics and international trade, our tailor-made advisory services, and our ongoing think tanks and other events. I would like to draw your attention in particular to the WTO Chairs Programme (WCP), a partnership between TRADE and the World Trade Organization which has enabled us to expand our reach and influence, and to attract growing numbers of Master's and PhD students by offering study bursaries to deserving candidates, who are hosted within TRADE.
We have an exciting programme ahead of us in the coming months and we will keep you updated on recent as well as future events. Whatever your specific interests or aspirations are, I wish you all of the best and look forward to engaging with many of you. If you would like to contact us, send an email to or click here for full contact details.
Kind regards,
Director: TRADE research focus area and WTO Chair
