International trade is a key focus area of EGC, with about one-third of EGC’s faculty affiliates conducting research on trade.  EGC provides a variety of grants, fellowships, and other research support to faculty and students engaged in topics relating to international trade. The EGC also provides support for the Program in International Trade at the Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics, a sister research center also at the Yale Department of Economics, as part of its efforts to foster collaboration across Yale to further scholarship on questions facing low-income countries. The program is led by Lorenzo Caliendo, Professor of Economics at Yale’s School of Management (SOM).
