Discussion Paper 2/2017
Are trade agreements becoming ‘greener’? We analyse environmental provisions in trade agreements signed by emerging markets. Our findings indicate a trend towards more environmental content and suggest that these developments may have been partly triggered by OECD countries’ policy-making.
The paper analyses the 2030 Agenda’s basic principles (universality and indivisibility to leave no one behind) and operationalizes SDG-sensitive development cooperation which is the adjustment of development cooperation to support the implementation of 2030 Agenda in partner countries.
Harms, Philipp / Jakob Schwab (2016)
Who are the ‘winners and losers’ of globalisation? Have those voting against globalisation really been left behind, or have the benefits of free markets simply not been communicated to them well enough? Drawing on recent research, Philipp Harms and Jakob Schwab write that it is mostly the low-skilled in rich countries and the high-skilled in poor ones who view multinationals negatively.
