CEPII, Recherche et Expertise sur l'economie mondiale
  International Macroeconomics and Finance
This program focuses on the international financial cycle and has three objectives: to document the financial dynamics - for example, what are the amounts and destination of French bank loans in the world ?; Analyze the mechanisms of transmission of shocks - for example, what is the effect of a change in the price of oil on the activity of emerging countries ?; Finally, to analyze the effect of financial integration on the allocation of resources - can finance become a handicap for one country's productivity? The research mobilizes modeling tools and data work.

  International Trade Analysis
The objective of this program is to shed light on the determinants and consequences of international trade in goods and services. Issues covered include international trade specializations, income and distributional consequences of international trade, country- and sector-level dynamics, multinational firms, foreign investment and firms' competitiveness and international strategies. Several databases are developed by CEPII to provide detailed and organised information on these issues, which are publicly available: CHELEM, BACI, TUV (Trade Unit Values), World Trade Flows Characterization, TradeHist. In addition CEPII's Country Profiles provide a unique source of organised, ready-to-use illustrations about 80 country's insertion in the world economy.

  Trade Policy
This program focuses on trade policy and its repercussion. It covers different matters, from multilateral openness to regional integration, from tariff barriers to non-tariff measures, to trade in services. These topics are processed in relation to long-term environmental issues. The studies carried out are based on applied models developed at CEPII (like MIRAGE) and on econometric studies. They use original databases such as MAcMap or EconMap.
