The International Trade Select Committee has published five Areas of Research Interest (ARI) for 2021 to help support the Committee’s scrutiny of UK wide trade policy. The ARI are as follows:
- Trade negotiations
- Gender and trade
- Food standards
- Developing countries
- Foreign Policy and Trade
Academics at all career stages, research institutions, and experts are encouraged to register their interest in the ARIs, add their existing research in the topic areas, provide their insights, and suggest questions that the Committee could be asking the Government.
CAPE Policy Fellow Rob Davies, who through his fellowship at Parliament’s Scrutiny Unit, has been working with Committee’s on their use of evidence, and has been involved in the development of the International Trade Committee’s ARI.
