How do Trade and Investment Contribute to Peace and Stability? What Should Policymakers do?

This Policy Brief was first published in https://t20ind.org


The premise that countries that trade are less likely to go to war is in urgent need of revisiting and refreshing. With respect to strategy, policy, and targeted measures, this policy brief distinguishes between conceptually quite distinct, even if mutually supportive, trade- and investment- related interventions. Specifically, this brief provides G20 policymakers with a framework to better understand and use trade and investment for peace and stability (TIPS), known as the TIPS Framework. This is critical to the G20’s role in global security and cooperation. The TIPS Framework is grounded in empirical evidence and composed of 12 guiding principles that can help orient and inform TIPS strategy and policy, coupled with 12 targeted measures to operationally leverage trade and investment for peace and stability.
