WHAT IS THE CHALLENGE?
Countries have become increasingly interdependent through the exchange of goods and services and flows of capital, technology, information, and to some extent, labour. How economic globalisation and its governing institutions affect human welfare and the environment (locally, nationally, and globally) is the subject of the research undertaken in this program.
HOW CAN THE PROGRAMME CONTRIBUTE TO A SOLUTION?
Providing a better understanding of how the integration of markets across countries can be accomplished while balancing environmental quality.
WHO WILL BENEFIT FROM THE RESULTS?
The research will contribute to the development of tools to support Swedish and other European negotiators and stakeholders in integrating environmental aspects into the international trade regime.
