The overall aim of the training activities of trapca is to bring new perspectives to world trade, to inspire the creation of networks in LDCs and to develop competencies for strengthening the capacity of LDCs to engage within the international trading systems with a view to overcoming the constraints to, and of utilizing the development-related opportunities provided by trade. In line with the overall aim, trapca is offering Advanced Short courses concentrating on international trade regulatory and policy frameworks. Existing programmes around the world take either a global or regional perspective in international trade law and policy. By focusing on the LDCs and low-income developing countries, this programme is neither global nor regional in focus but transcends into LDCs as an economic category of states, thereby addressing unmet training needs. This document specifies the nature, design and content of the Advanced Short Courses in International Trade Policy and Law.
The advanced short courses are the master course modules and thus taught at the level of a master programme. The objective of establishing the advanced short courses is to create flexibility on the part of the participants. Those interested in competencies in specific modules only can still access these competencies without being tied to a 2 year master programme. The modules cover a wide variety of trade and trade-related topics. This includes modules that provide critical conceptual understanding of the foundations of trade from both a development and legal perspective.
