Short courses on key international economic issues - South-South cooperation
Description
Part of a series of short courses on key international economic issues to be held in the second half of 2010 for delegates and other staff who follow matters pertaining to UNCTAD or the World Trade Organization (WTO) in Geneva. The course will take a closer look at cooperation among developing countries to assess how far it has already advanced, whether it can help buttress developing economies against the crises and shocks that have accompanied an increasingly unregulated global economy, and how it might best contribute to building more stable development paths. It will also discuss the relation between South-South cooperation and traditional development cooperation and whether and how it can help shift the multilateral agenda in a more developmental direction.
Notes/Key results
The aim is to give permanent missions an opportunity to follow a shorter, more focused version of the regional three-week course on key issues on the international economic agenda.
