Trade Governance

As part of the WTI's NCCR Trade Regulation this work package studies challenges to governing the international trading system, both in the public and private realm. Research addresses governance issues in a multi-layered system. The sub-projects build upon and complement findings of the research conducted in Phase I of the NCCR trade regulation. Phase II focuses on two major areas of research not explicitly addressed so far: judicial governance and the role of private actors in international trade disputes, in law-making and standard setting, in particular with regard to human rights and responsible governance. The WP tackles the traditional conceptual dichotomy of state-led and private-led governance and works within a framework that bridges both public and private elements of trade governance.
