Emily Jones and Greg Messenger have set up the Trade and Public Policy (TaPP) Network. The TaPP Network aims to connect academic researchers with civil servants, parliamentary researchers, journalists, and others looking for expert input on UK trade policy. The aim is to increase the breadth and depth of evidence available to decision-makers in UK policy and help improve the quality of the public debate. You can find out more about the TaPP Network here.
It is an open network, and happily hosts the profiles of academics based at universities or research institutes around the world with expertise in the various aspects of trade policy. If you are interested in joining, please contact them here.
