The Global Trade and Financial Architecture (GTFA) project is an initiative sponsored by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) that was designed to build on the findings of the report of the UN Millennium Taskforce on Trade report, Trade for Development. It is piloted by a Steering Committee of leading researchers and policy makers and co-chaired by Ernesto Zedillo, Yale Center for the Study of Globalization, and Patrick Messerlin, Groupe d’Economie Mondiale de SciencesPo.
The GTFA objective is to identify and promote concrete policy options for reinvigorating and strengthening the multilateral economic systems and institutions that have supported the process of globalization since the Second World War. It is also about making this globalization process more sustainable and inclusive, and the project focuses on issues pertaining to the protection of “global economic commons” (e.g. trade or environment) and development.
