Workshop commodities 2015

On 21 April 2015, a group of scholars and stakeholders discussed research gaps in the field of commodities and trade at an academic workshop.

The base for the workshop was the working paper: "The Commodity Sector and Related Governance Challenges from a Sustainable Development Perspective: The Example of Switzerland - Current Research Gaps" (see below).

The workshop, which included contributions by distinguished speakers from Swiss and international academia, the commodity-trading industry, and civil society, was part of the project “Global change and developing countries: why should we care?” managed by the Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE) and the Forum for Climate and Global Change (ProClim). It was co-sponsored by the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN).

The event was co-hosted by the Centre for Development and Environment (CDE) and the World Trade Institute (WTI) of the University of Bern and the Institute for Business Ethics (IWE) of the University of St. Gallen.

Out of the working paper and the workshop the two Factsheets (below) were produced.

The Commodity Sector and Related Governance Challenges from a Sustainable Development Perspective: The Example of Switzerland

This working paper was written in the context of the project "Global change and Developing Countries: Why should we care?” managed by the Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries (KFPE) and ProClim. It aims at identifying main knowledge gaps and providing a basis for further academic research on commodity investment and trading, while informing current policy debates and decision-making processes in Switzerland.
