GIFTA: Governance and Economic Integration through Free Trade Agreements


Audio welcome from Dr Maria Garcia, GIFTA co-organiser

GIFTA aims to foster inter-disciplinary research on the evolution and effects of free trade agreements (FTAs) in America, Europe and Asia.

It is our wish to strengthen and build a diverse network of scholars in geographic and disciplinary terms, by bringing together economists, lawyers, political scientists, international relations and international political economy scholars interested in international trade policies, in particular FTAs.

If you are a researcher working on these matters and would like more information, please contact us.

We will organise 6 workshops throughout 2015 and 2016 to bring together UK and international scholars to reflect upon latest FTA trends, developments and effects.

Finally, we are bringing FTA matters to the public’s attention through the production of briefs, organising public outreach presentations and events.

This project has been funded by ESRC under Seminar Series 2014-16.
