Journal Publication
For the Tenth Anniversary Conference, the organizers took the opportunity to revisit the foundations of global economic analysis, reflecting on the past successes of the GTAP Network and deliberating on future issues related to global economic analysis. The Center joined together with the Journal of Economic Integration to publish a special edition of the journal for the conference. The top papers submitted to the conference, as selected by the reviewers and the program committee, were invited to publish in this special edition of the journal, along with a commissioned paper by Alan A. Powell, tracing the history of GTAP. The aim was to publish the best papers under the four key sub-themes: Future directions, International Trade, International Development, and the Environment.

The Center would like to recognize the efforts of Terrie Walmsley, Thomas Hertel and Jong Eun Lee for their work in coordinating this special edition of the journal.
