LATIN AMERICAN JOURNAL OF TRADE POLICY CALL FOR PAPERS The Latin American Journal of Trade Policy is an official publication of the Institute of International Studies of the University of Chile. Following an open access policy, the full version of the journal, and individual papers, will be available on-line free of charge. The Latin American Journal of Trade Policy (LAJTP) focusses on trade policy issues in Latin America from a multidisciplinary perspective. A particular aim of the journal is reduce the gap between academia and policymakers. As such, the journal encourages paper submissions on topics related to trade policy formulation, implementation and evaluation; international trade agreements and their impact, including WTO issues and preferential trade agreements; Latin American regional integration processes; and, bilateral trade and investment relations both between Latin American countries and with overseas economies. The journal is interested in publishing papers that draw policy relevant conclusions from academic research, that confront theoretical models with the Latin American experience and that use the specific regional experiences to develop new models. Particular consideration is given to empirical articles using quantitative, qualitative, or a mixed methods approach. We encourage the submission of articles that:  contribute to existing knowledge of trade policy making in Latin America;  develop and advance pertinent theories to the region;  deal with the gap between academia and policy making;  utilize quantitative, qualitative, and mixed method approaches. Additional information about the journal, including guidance for authors, is available on the Latin American Journal of Trade Policy website (www.iei.uchile.cl). We hope...

Call for papers: “Trade in Knowledge: Economic, Legal and Policy Aspects”

Call for papers: “Trade in Knowledge: Economic, Legal and Policy Aspects”

  The World Trade Organization invites proposals for papers for an edited, scholarly volume on knowledge flows in international trade, and their implications for policymakers. It is now more than 22 years since the WTO TRIPS Agreement entered into force, setting intellectual property (IP) standards at the centre of multilateral trade rules. The period since then has seen a fundamental transformation in the scale, diversity, and very nature of cross-border commercial transactions in knowledge and knowledge products. An array of technological, economic, social and policy factors drives this transformation and diversification. These developments were briefly outlined in a brochure, Changing the Face of IP Trade and Policy-Making, published by the WTO on its 20th anniversary in 2015. We now plan an authoritative, in-depth scholarly publication that maps the economic, legal and policy aspects of current trends in trade in knowledge. The volume is intended to serve as a conceptual and empirical foundation for a renewed set of policy discussions, capacity building and technical assistance for governments seeking to engage with the knowledge economy for development, through new trade, business and employment opportunities. The volume will focus on the legal character and economic implications of international transactions that facilitate the transfer or diffusion of new knowledge and intangible content, through traditional trade channels and new forms of business and knowledge transfer. We therefore seek economists interested in measuring how knowledge crosses international borders in different ways, and in analysing time-trends, geographical spread, the nature and speed of diffusion, and the role of economic actors in different sectors. We also seek legal and policy...

El nuevo multilateralismo se cocina a fuego lento. Autor: Valentina Delich

Posted by on nov 10, 2017 in Slide | Comentarios desactivados

El nuevo multilateralismo se cocina a fuego lento Algunas consideracionaes previas a la reunión de diciembre de la OMC y el rol argentino en la misma. Autor: Valentina Delich Ya es casi un lugar común aludir a la reconfiguración del poder mundial. La declinación de los Estados Unidos, la crisis europea, la emergencia de China y la India, las migraciones masivas, la violencia y la incertidumbre son parte de cualquier ejercicio intelectual sobre el escenario internacional. Una incertidumbre violenta y fragmentaria en un capitalismo liberal interpelado por capitalismos variopintos: capitalismo de Estado, capitalismo autoritario, capitalismo concentrado, capitalismo verde… En este marco, las reglas e instituciones creadas en el mundo analógico del siglo XX, crujen, se ensanchan y retraen para acomodarse al nuevo escenario. Y la Organización Mundial del Comercio (OMC) no es la excepción. En efecto, la OMC realizará su Undécima Conferencia Ministerial (M11) en Buenos Aires el próximo diciembre. ¿Qué resultados serían deseables y cuáles posibles? La respuesta requiere repasar primero la dinámica de la propia organización para luego atender al contexto y a nuestras ideas e intereses en particular. Durante muchos años, entre 1947 y 1994, el GATT reguló las relaciones comerciales internacionales con un blend de liberalización y mecanismos de protección o escape. Lo que John Ruggie estudió, analizó, documentó y bautizó como embebed liberalism. La última negociación del GATT (Ronda Uruguay, 1986-1994), sin embargo, trajo aparejada una regulación detallada de aquellos mecanismos, válvulas de escape o espacios para políticas contenidas en el GATT: así, se reguló detalladamente el procedimiento para colocar derechos antidumping,...
