The CITP Inaugural Academic Conference: Call for Papers



Conference Date: 20-21 April 2023

Location: University of Sussex, Brighton, UK


The Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP) are holding their first annual conference on 20-21 April 2023 at University of Sussex, Brighton, UK. They are welcoming call for papers relevant to the centre’s work.

CITP is built on the precept that trade policy should be inclusive in both policy formulation and outcome and focuses on four dimensions of inclusiveness: geography, political domains, society and generations. The Centre comprises scholars from economics, law, business management, politics and international relations and at all stages of their careers, and is committed to listening to the voices of all parts of UK society. Formulating an effective trade policy that delivers something for all parts of society in such circumstances requires an evidence-based interdisciplinary approach, which the Centre aims to provide.

The annual Academic Conference aims to provide a platform for all trade policy researchers, from a variety of different disciplines and areas of interest to come together to present, discuss and learn about the latest thinking on trade and trade policy.



Authors are invited to submit full papers, but extended abstracts will be considered. Please also include an abstract of the paper of around 100 words.

Papers should be submitted by Email to: info@citp.ac.uk by 11.59pm on Monday 16th January 2023.

Authors of accepted papers to be presented at the conference will be included in the conference programme as long as at least one author has registered by 10th March 2023.
