"I’m proud to share these new TradeVistas resources for students studying international affairs, global business and public policy - our future business leaders and trade negotiators.” - Andrea Durkin, TradeVistas Editor-in-Chief

TradeVistas launched new, free resources to help educators bring real-world examples of how trade impacts our lives into the classroom.

While international trade policy is a core part of foreign policy and drives our economy, many academic programs struggle to incorporate this important topic. Teaching material – if it covers trade policy at all – is often theoretical and does not draw from real-world business and policy scenarios.

“I know firsthand how challenging it can be to develop curriculum that is relevant to today’s politics and economics because I’m an educator myself,” TradeVistas Editor-in-Chief Andrea Durkin said. “That’s why I’m proud to share these new TradeVistas resources for students studying international affairs, global business and public policy - our future business leaders and trade negotiators.”
