Welcome to the ETSG
The European Trade Study Group (ETSG) is a forum for academic discussion and research on international trade among universities and research institutes. Participation in ETSG activities is open to all academic and research economists.

ETSG conferences have always been about informal, as well as formal, interactions amongst participants. With the social distancing rules that are likely to be necessary for the next several months because of Covid-19, it would be impossible to organise and host anything like a typical ETSG conference this year. We have therefore decided to cancel this September’s conference and meet again in 2021. We are very disappointed in having to do this, but we could see no way of offering the ETSG experience under the cloud of the coronavirus (or online).
We are, however, very happy to announce that the hosts of this year’s conference in Ghent have generously offered to hold the conference on 9-11 September 2021. So Ghent is a pleasure postponed rather than an opportunity lost. We look forward to meeting everyone again in 2021.
Participation in the conference is open to any contribution (theoretical and/or empirical) on any issue related to international trade theory and policy.
