The Graduate Institute has been a long-time neighbour of the GATT secretariat, and later WTO, in Geneva. In addition, it has also developed cutting-edge expertise on the issues and challenges inherent to trade liberalisation and regulation. In its teaching programmes, the Graduate Institute is fortunate to be able to draw on contributions from high-ranking WTO staff and a world-renowned faculty. The Summer Programme on the WTO, International Trade and Development builds upon this long tradition and offers a unique opportunity to observe first-hand the atmosphere and analyses surrounding multilateral trade, as well as witness some of the most important international discussions on the topic.
