WTO Chair at Tunis Business School: Call for PhD funding

In 2014, Tunis Business School was selected for the WTO Chair Programme (WCP). The WCP is designed to assist the University of Tunis in providing students with a deeper understanding of trade policy issues, as well as to strengthen Tunisia’s participation in international trade. It lasts 4 years.
