Academic Conference 2024

University of Nottingham

18-19 April 2024

The Centre for Inclusive Trade Policy (CITP), the first centre dedicated to trade policy to be funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, 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.

Our 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.

University Park is The University of Nottingham’s largest campus at 300 acres. Part of the University since 1929, the campus is widely regarded as one of the largest and most attractive in the country. Set in extensive greenery and around a lake, University Park is the focus of life for students, staff and visitors.

Nottingham is a green city with a vibrant culture and a bright future. A creative city of Pioneers and Rebels and home to the legend of Robin Hood. A city where you’ll find the legend of its outlaw and a thousand years of history at Nottingham Castle a stone’s throw from state-of-the-art developments emerging in Southside, Waterside and the Island Quarter.

Nottingham is located just half an hour from East Midlands Airport connecting the city to over 80 destinations and less than an hour away from Birmingham Airport. A direct rail service to London St Pancras which takes less than 2 hours, provides Nottingham with connections via the Eurostar.

Nottingham is on a mission to become the UK’s first carbon-neutral city by 2028, with unprecedented levels of investment in an award-winning, clean and green public transport system. It’s a place that’s always moving forward while celebrating its past.
