The Graduate Institute is a leading institution of research and higher education dedicated to the study of world affairs located in Geneva. The Centre for Trade and Economic Integration (CTEI) is the Graduate Institute’s Centre of Excellence for research on international trade. The Centre brings together the Institute’s research activities in the area of trade, investment, economic integration and globalization. The Centre provides a forum for discussion and dialogue, supporting the TradeLab International Economic Law Clinic in kind and through competitively-obtained third-party funding. The first TradeLab Clinic was initiated at the Graduate Institute by Professor Joost Pauwelyn in 2009, thereby starting off the TradeLab network of clinics and resource centres.
