The World Trade Review (WTR) was established at the initiative of the Secretariat of the World Trade Organization (WTO) in close cooperation with Cambridge University Press. It is an independent journal that includes articles written from economic, legal, political and inter-disciplinary perspectives on issues of relevance to the multilateral trading system. Priority is given to papers that, along with being academically rigorous, are also accessible to government policy officials and the wider public. The journal also includes shorter articles seeking to rebut or challenge published papers.
As of Janyuary 2023, the editorial team consists of:
- Wolfgang Alschner, Associate Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Ottawa, Canada
- Manfred Elsig, Professor of International Relations at the University of Bern and Deputy Managing Director of the World Trade Institute
- Joseph Francois, Professor of International Economics at the University of Bern and Managing Director of the World Trade Institute
- Hylke Vandenbussche, Full Professor and International Trade Economist in the Department of Economics of the University of Leuven
Prof. Peter Van den Bossche, Director of Studies at the WTI, is, as of January 2022, member of the WTR Editorial Board.
