The October 2021 issue of the Newsletter provides a quick recap of ICRIER’s research and policy engagements during the month of September 2021 under different thrust areas.

Last month we organised two Webinars in partnership with Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), on the topics, ‘People, Planet, Prosperity: Rebuilding differently’ and ‘Formulating New Approaches to Strengthen Multilateral Trading System’. ICRIER faculty also released a policy brief on the topic ‘People, Planet, Prosperity: Rebuilding differently’ and a research article on ‘COVID-19: Impact on Indian SMEs and their Trade Integration’.

Drawing on their research work, our faculty members wrote over 20 opinion pieces and other articles in various newspapers on a wide range of topics including carbon taxes, multilateralism, agriculture policy, supply chains and employment, among others.

We hope you will take some time to glance through this newsletter. We would love to hear from you.
