Conferences & Seminars

Migration and Development Conference
June 26-28, 2008, Lille, France
A three-day academic conference where leading researchers presented their most recent work on migration, remittances, and brain drain.
Conference Website

Political Economy of Distortions to Agricultural Incentives
May 23-24, 2008, World Bank, Washington, DC
This conference brought together leading scholars using political-economy models to understand the level and evolution of agricultural distortions. The studies used the new database on agricultural distortions assembled as part of the World Bank project on agricultural distortions.
Agenda 

Trade Costs and the Business Environment: Moving New Research into Results on the Ground
May 15, 2008, World Bank, Washington, DC. (Also
The removal of non-tariff barriers and lower trade costs are increasingly recognized as key factors that affect private sector performance. The ability of firms to deliver goods and services on time—at lowest possible costs—is also a key determinant of successful integration into the world economy and lifting the poor out of poverty. This one-day course provided an update on these issues based on the question: What research, data, and empirical evidence do we have today on trade facilitation and trade costs—and how do we move that research and analysis more efficiently into operations on the ground at the country and regional level?
Agenda and Presentations
(Same program given on May 31, 2008, Entebbe, Uganda, co-organized with the African Economic Research Consortium.)

Seminars

International Trade Research Training Seminar
Economic Research Forum
August 3-5, 2008, Cairo Egypt
This three-day workshop trained young researchers how to identify research questions that are both relevant to policy making and contribute to the generation of new knowledge, and select and adopt appropriate analytical methodologies to tackle these questions.
Workshop website

Modeling Services Liberalization in Africa
A two-week seminar, jointly organized with the African Economic Research Consortium, included 15 researchers from Sub-Saharan Africa. The first week was training in general equilibrium modeling using GAMS and MPSGE, while the second week focused on the models of services in Kenya and Tanzania developed by David Tarr, Edward Balestreri, Jesper Jensen and Thomas Rutherford.
Organizer: David Tarr and Ana Margarida Fernandes (
research@worldbank.org)

Trade Policy and WTO Accession for Development in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States
Spring 2008
This was a World Bank Institute GDLN activity conducted on four successive Thursday afternoons. The speakers were located in Moscow and were linked to four locations in Moscow and Minsk Belarus.
Organizer: David Tarr (
)

Trade Research Seminars (internal only)
The seminar series included 20 talks in micro and macro topics in international trade, with an emphasis on the links between trade and development. Many of the speakers are among the top in their field and present the latest academic work in the area. The series also calls attention to policy-relevent work in international trade.

Data

African Trade Database
This database was constructed to meet the need for high-quality data to allow analysis of trade reforms involving African countries. Particular attention was given to ensuring that the database would allow analysis of proposals for regional trade agreements introduced in conjunction with the Economic Partnership Agreements (EPAs) with the European Union. The dataset greatly expands the number of regions and the quality of input-output data for African regions for analyzing the Global Trade Analysis Project (GTAP) database and model.

European Union Standards for Agricultural Products and Textiles
The dataset files in this page contain a data on the EU Standards Database for agricultural products and textiles/clothing The EU Standards Database collates European standards for agricultural products and textiles/clothing over the period 1995-2003, and maps them to the Harmonized System. For each product-year combination, counts are given both of the number of standards and of the number of pages of standards. In general, rapid growth is observed both in the number and average length of standards. The dataset is publicly available here.

Estimates of Distortions to Agricultural Incentives, 1955–2007
National country studies were undertaken in more than 50 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe’s transition economies. They were supplemented with similar estimates and analytical narratives of policy trends in 20 high-income countries. Together those countries account for more than 90 percent of the value of global agricultural output. The distortions database provides nominal rates of assistance estimates for about 70 percent of the products in those countries, as well as NRAs for non-agricultural tradables in order to also compute a relative rate of assistance. Consumer tax equivalents are also provided for the covered products in each focus country, along with value of production and consumption at undistorted prices for each product.
Dataset

Global Trade Analysis Project
The GTAP Database is a fully documented, publicly available global data base which contains complete bilateral trade information, transport and protection linkages among regions for all GTAP commodities. Version 7contains summary matrices, Excel workbooks containing country specific data in two formats: Summary tables and SAMs for each of the 95 GTAP countries; and 1 workbook containing sector specific data. Data for Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia (contributed by DECRG researchers) are now available.

Measuring Brain Drain by Gender
This dataset measures international skilled migration by gender. Emigration stocks and rates are provided by level of schooling and gender for 195 source countries in 1990 and 2000. The dataset is publicly available here.

Panel Data on International Migration
This dataset measures international skilled migration for the years 1975-2000.

Technical Barriers to Trade Survey
This database on technical barriers to trade and standards is based on a survey of 689 firms in 17 developing countries. It includes information on both mandatory technical regulations, as well as the use of voluntary standards. For example, the data include information on the costs of meeting standards and technical barriers required in major export markets. The data also include firms' experiences with product testing and their responses to questions regarding mutual recognition agreements.
