11 May to 5 June 2009
UNITAR and World Trade Institute (WTI) are pleased to announce the launch of their joint e-Learning course on the theme of “International Trade Regulation” (11 May to 5 June 2009).
This course aims to provide an introduction to the institutional rules of the World Trade Organization (WTO) as well as a preliminary survey of the principles and basic rules of the international trading system to prepare participants for further study and analysis in the area.
The course will be jointly conducted by UNITAR and WTI over the internet using UNITAR's e-Learning infrastructure for a four week period. High quality training content will be provided by UNITAR and WTI for the course, which will form the basis for study, discussions, group work and individual assessments. The learning environment will comprise trade sector officials and professionals from all over the world (developing, emerging and industrialised nations) who will have a unique opportunity to study, share, and engage in practical discussions using our discussion board facility. A panel of senior experts with global understanding of current challenges and issues will moderate the substantive aspects of the course.
This course will be the first of a series of three joint UNITAR/WTI e-Learning courses to be conducted over the next 12 months. It is hoped that this initiative will make a contribution to bridging the knowledge gap and redress some of the asymmetries between developed and developing countries in the role that they play in the multilateral trading system.
