The initiative aims to inform the international debates on the global governance of sustainable development and development assistance.
The main issues addressed will particularly concern:

- the interactions between the different facets of global governance, especially the growing linkages between objectives concerning climate commitments, trade liberalisation negotiations and issues relating to intellectual property rights for developed and emerging countries.

This paper studies how the presence of multinational enterprises affects the export performance of Bulgarian manufacturing firms—export spillovers from FDI. Using export data at the firm/product/destination level for the period 2004–2006, it finds positive forward spillover on export value and quantity, related to quality upgrading. Conversely, it finds negative (or insignificant) backward and horizontal spillover […]

We propose a simple way of integrating the traditional random utility maximisation model used to analyse location decisions with a classical labour demand function at destination. Our setup allows us to estimate a general upper […]
