Carnegie UK Trust presents original research on the relationship between advocacy groups, citizens, and international organizations that regulate trade, markets, and consumer policy. The Trust recently conducted a study on public attitudes in Britain, using the World Trade Organization as a test case. It also measured citizen awareness of the organizations that influence the WTO and identified best practices from the leading organizations in the field. The findings are vital for any professional working in advocacy, consumer policy, or citizen engagement.
