Euro-Latin Study Network on Integration and Trade (ELSNIT)
The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), through its Special Office in Europe (ORP-EUR), the Institute for the Integration of Latin America and the Caribbean -INTAL- in Buenos Aires and the Integration and Trade Sector, launched the Euro-Latin Study Network on Integration and Trade (ELSNIT).
This initiative creates a forum in Europe on regional integration and trade issues relevant to Latin America and the Caribbean. The main objectives of the Network are to generate research, studies and debate on these issues; draw on the rich European experience; and increase interaction between European and Latin American researchers.
ELSNIT is coordinated by a Steering Committee that currently consists of the Centre d’Etudes Prospectives et d’Informations Internationales (CEPII), Paris, France; the Kiel Institute for the World Economy (IfW), Kiel, Germany; the European University Institute (EUI), Florence, Italy; the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals (IBEI), Barcelona, Spain; the University of St. Gallen, St. Gallen, Switzerland; the Center for Economic Performance (CEP), London, United Kingdom; the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR), London, United Kingdom, and the IDB (represented by INT and INTAL).
