The Policy Implications of Recent Globalization Research

          

The Policy Implications of Recent Globalization Research

Monthly Online Seminar Series

 

The online seminar series on “The Policy Implications of Recent Globalization Research” is organised by the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics (CEP-LSE), the Center for Global Development and German Development Institute. 
 

Format
The online seminar series aims to encourage the exchange and discussion of empirical research on trade and investment and its effects on developing and emerging countries. The seminar differs from a traditional academic seminar, which focuses on methodology and academic exchange, and instead aims to promote the translation of academic findings into policy. As such, the seminar series provides the opportunity for mutual learning: researchers learning about urgent policy questions and policy makers learning about what is methodologically feasible. Within the seminar series, we aim for academic researchers that can share innovative empirical work and policy insights. Instead of focusing on particular papers, the seminar series invites presenters to present on a particular topic and present their accumulated and broader research findings and agenda. The target audience of the seminar includes both academics and policymakers dealing with trade and investment, and particularly policy makers from emerging and developing countries and in multilateral organisations.The seminar series is held on Zoom and consists of a 40 minutes presentation and 20 minutes Q&A, although we encourage interactive discussions throughout the seminar.
