Globalization has made trade policy a more prominent and complex sphere of public policy. Policymakers, analysts, business people and activists must deal simultaneously with initiatives at the national, bilateral, regional and multilateral levels.

No longer confined to tariffs and quotas, trade policy is completely linked to a nation’s social and environmental policies—not to mention a country’s overall development strategy.

Designed for All Trade Practitioners

Mastering Trade Policy: Understanding and Acting in Today’s Economy teaches you how to analyze, formulate, negotiate and implement effective policies and practices in your field. This trade policy executive program offers a practical approach that emphasizes the core competencies of successful practitioners as well as the latest political and policy developments in the field.
