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.

 

Call for Papers: Trade and Global Development Challenges


Although the liberalisation of the global trade regime has been frequently framed as necessary for achieving key global development goals, the relationship between trade and development has been found to be mixed. While increased trade can allow developing countries to close its gap with the developed nations, it also generates inequalities among groups and regions within nations (Urata and Narjoko, 2017). Increased global trade activities may also create environmental externalities that undermine the global environmental quality (Frankel, 2008). Furthermore, the social aspects of trade-related global production systems bring the question of resource asymmetries, technological divide, and human resources development at the forefront of the academic debates. JWTS Vol. 7, 2022 invites scholars and practitioners to share their research on how global trade can contribute to addressing global challenges, including global inequality, climate change, and global digital divide.
