Journal of World Trade Studies (JWTS) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, and open access journal that engages with issues surrounding global trade, covering its political-economic, legal, socio-cultural, as well as applied and technical aspects. JWTS provides an in-depth and thought-provoking analysis of the world trading system designed and exercised at multilateral, plurilateral, regional, and bilateral levels. JWTS particularly focuses on analysing regimes that regulate and sustain the world trading system and examining important developments in the global trade landscape. JWTS welcomes manuscripts from academics and practitioners who employ interdisciplinary perspectives and focus on areas that are currently neglected or under-researched. By presenting a rigorous analysis, JWTS seeks to foster knowledge on global trade and assist policy-makers and trade negotiators in producing evidence-based trade policies.
JWTS is published by the Center of World Trade Studies (CWTS), Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM), Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Since 2010, CWTS has been administering the WTO Chairs Programme (WCP) with its three main pillars on academic curriculum development, research, and outreach.
