Arnoldshain Seminar XVI “New Developments in International Trade and Innovation in a Changing World”


Since the global financial crisis of 2007/08, changes in trade and trade policy and growing innovation coupled with stillformidable obstacles in financial and monetary systems provide challenges for policymakers. At the same time, these issues provide an opportunity for researchers to delve into new areas of trade and innovation.

The 16th series of this conference is being organized by Bournemouth University, in the UK, with the aim of bringing together researchers interested in exploring the following subjects:

  • Empirical Analysis of Trade
  • Modelling Developments and Approaches
  • Growth, Development and Trade
  • Emerging Issues in Trade
  • Developments in Economic Governance
  • Monetary and Exchange Rate Policy
  • Brexit

Previous seminars (cf. the history at http://www.isces.net) have attracted speakers from different countries. We welcome academics, policy-makers, and in particular early career researchers, including postgraduate research students.
