Trade and Development Workshop 2023

Strand Building, Strand Campus, London

15 May bush house

The past 30 years have seen a dramatic fall in extreme poverty in most areas of the world and rising incomes in formerly poor and middle income countries. While there are many factors, the Trade and Development Workshop 2023 explores the role of international trade coincident with growing Global Value Chains and export led growth, as well as movements in the location of production and specialization moving millions of people from the countryside to the city.

After a successful and social workshop last year, we invite researchers in International Trade and Development to King's College London again to join in an informal workshop. This time we expect fewer prime ministers and be in the lovely River Room and Somerset Rooms of the King's Building along the Thames.

There are six talks with speakers who have kindly donated their travel funds for food and cocktails and we need discussants. All attendees must sign up on this link (TBA) where you can indicate if you are willing to discuss and/or join the Saturday hike.

As we have a capacity constraint, please let us know if you cannot make the conference, or if you have any dietary/accessibility needs.
