October 2009

The sixth edition of the World Customs Journal has been released by the International Network of Customs Universities (INCU).

This edition of the Journal provides the readers with insights from an exceptionally diverse group of authors and includes contributions from North and South America, Asia- Pacific, Europe and Africa.

Many of this edition’s contributors were able to present their papers at the World Customs Organization’s (WCO) annual PICARD (Partnership in Customs Academic Research and Development) conference held in Costa Rica in September 2009, and were particularly successful in generating active discussion and spirited debate.

This year’s conference addressed the impact of three significant issues on Customs and international trade: the economic crisis; regional trade agreements and the proliferation of such agreements; and climate change and environmental protection. Conference speakers included Michael Haughton, Maureen Irish, Santiago Ibáñez Marsilla, Chiza Charles N Chiumya, Carsten Weerth, Cezary SowiƄski, and Shujie Zhang.
