Delivering on the Promise of Inclusive Global Value Chains

23 octobre 2018

International organizations, governments, and private actors argue that participation in Global Value Chains (GVCs) is a promising development opportunity. Yet, the discussion around GVCs neglects to a large part the social consequences of GVC participation. To assure inclusive GVCs, we need better data, a rethinking of how countries join value chains, and an emphasis on protective institutions.

23 septembre 2018

To counter Russian actions of destabilization and deter future incursion into Eastern Europe, NATO should enhance its eastern flank military capabilities and increase the presence of conventional troops in the Baltics.

Current research suggests that regulatory uncertainty of the EU ETS keeps its market participants from considering the long-term goals behind the emissions trading system. Different reform options are at hand to enhance long-term regulatory credibility and revive the world’s largest climate policy instrument.

In Limbo: Protecting Syrian Refugees in Lebanon

12 septembre 2018 Droits de l'Homme et droit international

In the wake of the first few hundred Syrian refugees voluntarily returning from Lebanon to war-torn Syria, it is imperative that Lebanon reassesses its obligations as a host country.
