On 1 and 2 February 2018, Luca Rubini has presented the preliminary results of a major research project at the headquarters of the World Bank in Washington DC.

Luca Rubini’s research is part of the ‘Deep Integration’ research agenda of the Word Bank which is a comprehensive mapping exercise of all 300 Preferential Trade Agreements (PTAs) notified to the WTO in order to determine the depth of the commitments taken on by the parties. In particular, Luca Rubini is currently completing the mapping of the disciplines on subsidies and state-owned enterprises.

The results of the research will soon be published in two chapters in a World Bank handbook.
