The Business and Law Research Division  of the Athens Institute for Education and Research (ATINER) organizes An International Conference on International Trade, 13-16 June 2016, Athens, Greece. The conference website is:

The aim of the conference is to bring together academics and researchers of international trade, law, economics, politics, business and other related disciplines. This being the first conference on international trade organized by ATINER, there is no specific theme that limits the focus of subject-matter. On the contrary, and in-line with ATINER’s tradition, the hope is to be as interdisciplinary as possible, just like international trade, covering many disciplines and a diverse range of issues/topics. You may participate as panel organizer, presenter of one paper, chair of a session or observer.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. Fee structure information is available on In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi. Details of the social program are available at
