The Institute for International Trade collaborates with a range of international intergovernmental organizations in research projects and in the development and delivery of training to build trade-related capacity in developing countries. Some examples of IIT's collaborative work include:
IIT and the WTO have collaborated on two major research efforts resulting in the publication by Cambridge University Press of two significant collections of case studies addressed to developing countries' participation in the global economy and the multilateral trading system:
Both projects also received substantial financial support from AusAID.
IIT has contributed a chapter in 2011 on"TBT and SPS Measures, in Practice" to a World Bank publication entitled Preferential Trade Agreement Policies for Development: A Handbook. The chapter deals with the practice of both developed and developing countries in using trade agreements to further their goals in respect of technical barriers to trade and sanitary and phytosanitary measures.
IIT has contributed research papers addressed to trade facilitation and logistical services to seminars organized and funded by UNESCAP's ARTNet research network. IIT also provided the training module on trade in services for an UNESCAP trade training program in Bangkok in 2003.
IIT has been a regular contributor over the years to the annual IDLO Public International Trade Law Course held at the IDLO's Sydney offices. Institute contributions have focussed on the rules governing contingent trade remedies (antidumping, subsidies/countervail and safeguards) and market access issues in international trade. IIT and IDLO also collaborated on trade-related training delivered in Dili, East Timor.
