International trade policy is a core part of countries’ foreign policy engagement, drives how goods and services are produced and distributed, influences where jobs are created, and is a strategic tool in shaping long-term competitive advantage.
Many academic programs have insufficient content on this important topic. Teaching material – if it covers trade policy at all – is often theoretical and does not draw from real-world business and policy scenarios, making it hard to stimulate student interest and engagement.
That’s one of the reasons we launched TradeVistas.org.
Articles on TradeVistas demystify the workings of global trade and trade policy through fact-based, non-partisan, and entertaining narratives. The content is available for reprint and use through our reprint policy. Educators are using TradeVistas content in multiple ways – as assigned reading, as the basis for in-class discussion and case studies, and as the basis of online discussion groups.
