tralac’s new short course: Trade Law and Policy for Africa’s Development

training programme

tralac recently concluded its first certificate training programme on International Trade Law and Policy in the 21st Century, from an African development perspective. Following the final oral exams on Friday, 2 November 2018, successful participants were presented with their certificates and celebrated at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.

The course consisted of three one-week residential modules, along with preparatory online learning and assessment. The aim was to promote excellence in the development of trade law and policy management capacity across the continent; specifically, to address contemporary trade and broader economic governance challenges to contribute to enhanced governance and development outcomes.

The course began with a 5-day face-to-face module in Cape Town where participants learned both from tralac and from their peers. Participants were given a good grounding in the foundations of trade law, trade economics and the African trade landscape and debated the most pressing issues in trade law and policy.
