The UNCTAD Virtual Institute and the Work Programme on International Investment Agreements (IIAs) are organizing a workshop on the Teaching and Research of International Investment Agreements.
Based on the Vi´s teaching material on Legal and Economic Aspects of IIAs, the workshop has been designed for academic and research institutions in English-speaking developing - particularly least developed - countries in Africa.
Issues to be addressed:
- Policy-oriented research questions in the area
- Research methodologies
- Links between research and policymaking
Ways in which participants may use the knowledge and material acquired during the workshop, either to conduct training courses at their universities or for their own research work, will also be discussed.
