New Trends in Trade Agreements in Latin America & the Caribbean
Did you know that there are more than 270 free trade agreements in the world and that they cover half of global trade? Latin American and Caribbean countries take part in 70 such agreements, covering 70% of intra-regional trade. What do you need to know about these agreements? What opportunities, challenges and implications do they have for people, businesses, and countries? What can be done to maximize their benefits? In this course you will analyze in depth the provisions of regional and multilateral trade agreements and why countries in Latin America and the Caribbean still face important obstacles to fully take advantage of them. You will learn about new trends, emerging issues and dynamics, and possible future scenarios in trade agreements from renowned academics, researchers, and trade policy makers. This course is aimed at those interested in learning the practical aspects of how trade agreements work, and how to make the most of them.

Calculus plays a starring role in the biological, physical, and social sciences. By focusing outside of the classroom, we will see examples of calculus appearing in daily life. This course is a first and friendly introduction to calculus, suitable for someone who has never seen the subject before, or for someone who has seen some calculus but wants to review the concepts and practice applying those concepts to solve problems.
