About The Centre for WTO Studies (CWS) Article Writing Competition

The Centre for WTO Studies (CWS) is organizing an article writing competition for young researchers in the field of international trade, marking the 25th Anniversary of the World Trade Organisation (WTO). Twenty-five years after the establishment of the WTO, there loom many uncertainties and difficulties in the world of trade. As the world leaps into the new decade that is posed to be replete with new technological developments while still retaining several unresolved issues, it is important to assess how law and economics have addressed and will address these challenges in unstable geopolitics.
