WTI Summer Academy 2012 – new course information available

Launched in 2003, the World Trade Institute (WTI)’s Summer Academy meets the increasing demand for up-to-date knowledge of the cutting-edge issues in international trade regulation. The forthcoming 10th WTI Summer Academy covers many of the currently most important topics in the field of international trade. Trade facilitation and logistics, trade remedies and how to settle investment disputes are just three of the topics taught by our global faculty.

From 9 July to 10 August the 10th WTI Summer Academy will once again welcome participants from all over the world and bring together professionals, government officials, international civil servants, scholars, representatives of non-governmental organizations and students. Participants can either attend the whole of the five-week Summer Academy or may choose individual weekly modules on a flexible, à la carte, basis – in order to accommodate a wide range of training needs and interests.

To make it easy for participants to decide which weekly modules to attend, we have started to add information to our website. The course information sheets describe the key concepts, as well as indicating to whom the course might be particularly useful and provide a biography of the speaker so that all the relevant information can be seen at a glance.

Detailed information on the course for week 2 – trade remedies and on week 4 - managing the border is already accessible. Extra details on the other courses will be available shortly.

Please also note the updated order of course weeks.
9 – 13 July 2012: Contestable markets
23 – 27 July 2012: Settling investment disputes
(all other course weeks are in the same order as announced)
