Researcher's projects

Understanding Geographical Indications

This ANU Centre for European Studies (ANUCES) GI Project, funded by an EU Jean Monnet grant, aims to identify the evidence base underlying policies on geographical indications (GIs) thus contributing to more effective negotiations between the European Union and Australia/New Zealand in the proposed comprehensive trade agreement.

The GI Project will bring together the academic community undertaking empirical work on GIs. This community is currently widely dispersed with scholars coming from many different disciplinary backgrounds. An Academic Workshop will target academics who have or are about to undertake empirical research related to GIs and their impact. By including policy-makers in the assessment and evaluation of existing knowledge it will enhance the ability of academics to focus their work to maximise its relevance to policy-makers. The GI Project will support dissemination of knowledge about the impact of GIs among policymakers not usually exposed to the empirical evidence on the impact of GIs. The Project will create an impetus within the academic community to fill in the key knowledge gaps needed to improve the effectiveness of GI policy.
