Speaking to the call for making international trade and trade policy choices work for development, the Institute of Development Studies, InterAnalysis and the UK Trade Policy Observatory at the University of Sussex bring together a comprehensive training course to advance understanding of inclusion in international trade and trade policy – covering poverty, gender, human rights, sustainability and power asymmetries. You will gain the skills to engage with and shape trade and trade policy with an inclusive development agenda at the core.

At the end of the course you will:

  • Have a critical understanding of inclusive trade: key aspects of inclusion, actors, organisations and issues in trade and development.
  • Be able to apply conceptual and analytical tools to analyse trade policy, political economy and development issues.
  • Be better equipped to analyse sources of data and evidence.
  • Understand the links between trade, poverty, and gender; and, trade, human rights, and sustainability.
  • Have gained experience of analysing specific cases on trade in agriculture, services and digital trade.

Lectures and sessions will be delivered by trade and development experts.

The course will run over four weeks starting Thursday 3 March and finishing on Thursday 24 March – it will require four to six hours of your time per week. Pre-recorded sessions will allow for directed learning.

PLUS, live sessions will take place on Thursdays between 12.00pm and 14.00pm UK GMT. You will be assigned a course facilitator and to a small study group and be able to keep the conversation going via a dedicated online channel throughout the course.


Application Deadline: 17.00GMT, 10 February 2022.

Scholarships: Two scholarships available.
