Australasian Trade Workshop


The Australasian Trade Workshop is an annual conference of trade economists in Australasia that is hosted by a different university in the region each year, co-ordinated by Martin Richardson and Frank Stähler.

Next meeting

The 15th annual meeting of the Workshop, scheduled to be hosted by the Research School of Economics at the Australian National University in Canberra was cancelled because of the community response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our intention was to attempt to run ATW in March 2021 at the ANU (hoping that the Auckland University of Technology would be able to host it in 2022) but the continuing pandemic is still keeping Australian borders closed for international travel. This makes any face to face participation of international scholars in March 2021 very unlikely and, as we think that informal in-person interactions are an essential part of ATW, we do not see an online-only ATW as an attractive or viable alternative, particularly given the wide variety of time zones of the countries from which ATW presenters typically originate. 

With regret, we have therefore decided to also cancel ATW 2021 and we are now planning to hold the next ATW at ANU, Canberra on March 19th and 20th, 2022. Please mark those dates on your calendar. We thank you for your patience and encourage you to check this page for future updates.
