The Third Empirical Investigations in Services Trade (EIST) conference is an activity of the Schuman Centre’s Global Governance Programme and the CEPR Trade Policy Research Network. It brings together research economists working on the analysis of the determinants of trade and investment in services and the impacts of services trade policies on economic performance. Papers span empirical analyses that have a macroeconomic focus as well as analysis focusing on the effects of sectoral policy and regulation, trade and investment agreements and the role of services in value chains, using firm or industry level data.
The programme includes 13 papers, with one hour per paper devoted to presentation, discussant remarks, and open discussion. Time allocation for each paper’s presentation should be approximately as follows: 40 minutes for the author, 10 minutes for discussant and 10 minutes Q&A.
The programme of the conference is available here.
