Comments and Critique

“Can I congratulate you … Warwick has invented a marvellous process for linking academics and the policy world because so much good social science work goes on in universities … this is a marvellous model … I think it is terrific.”

Lord Claus Moser, Member of the European Union Sub-Committee A (Economic and Financial Affairs and International Trade)

“This is an example of knowledge transfer at its best.”

Professor Glyn Davis, Vice Chancellor University of Melbourne

“The Warwick Commission report is timely and I applaud the Commission’s contribution to the debate. I appreciate the work the Warwick Commission has undertaken in seeking to strengthen the multilateral trading system.”

The Hon Simon Crean MP, Australian Minister for Trade

“I think that academics have a large role to play in terms of the development of the multilateral trading system or any policy issue. We need academics to be engaged and to help lead us forward in terms of ideas. So I think this kind of initiative – and I am delighted to see the University of Warwick take this initiative – is extremely valuable.”

The Hon Donald Stephenson, Canadian Ambassador, WTO
