IDEAS Centre

IDEAS Centre is a not-for-profit organization created by the late Arthur Dunkel, former GATT Director General, and Nicolas Imboden, former Swiss trade negotiator and Ambassador in charge of aid. It is dedicated to facilitate the integration of developing countries into the world economy and has assembled over the last 13 years substantial experience on this issue. Its mission is to support policy makers around the world working to develop approaches to assure that globalization can be harnessed for development and to fight against poverty both within their countries and in a more inclusive and fairer world trading system.
