The objective of this course is to enhance the capacity of the participants to better understand and design legal provisions of regional trade agreements (RTAs) – particularly those that can help ensure better preparedness and greater resilience in response to future crises. The course will elaborate on: (1) why we need to improve RTAs and what gaps exist in the existing RTAs in guiding the conduct of national trade policy in times of crisis; (2) how we can design better RTA provisions that are well adapted to the future crisis situations. This course will provide a range of options of provisions that can be used in future RTAs.

The course runs from 22 November until 14 December 2021.

Registration open until 18 November 2021:
