The Geneva Trade and Development Workshop (GTDW) is a joint seminar series of the Geneva School of Economics and Management (GSEM), the Geneva Graduate Institute (IHEID), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). Starting in 2020, we partnered with the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) to host some of the GTDW sessions online.
