The Virtual Institute (Vi) online course on trade and poverty analysis for researchers and university lecturers from developing and transition countries aims to provide participants with the empirical tools needed to assess the impact of trade and trade-related policies on poverty and income distribution.
Part of the Vi’s broader effort to strengthen research capacities in participants' countries, the course seeks to support governments in the design of pro-poor trade policies conducive to the attainment of the Millennium Development Goals.
As a hands-on technical course, the pedagogical approach emphasizes data manipulation and the use of econometric tools.
Thanks to the support from the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs and the Government of Finland, the selected participants are exempt from course fees.
