Update from the Policy, Legal and Regulatory Learning Lab

Posted By Marc Schleifer, Center for International Private Enterprise, Wednesday, March 25, 2020

The ANDE Policy, Legal and Regulatory Learning Lab, co-chaired by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, New Markets Lab and the Center for International Private Enterprise, sends its regards to the entire ANDE family and hope that you are keeping safe. In lieu of a regular Learning Lab newsletter, we'd like to share some updates with you.

First, from the TrustLaw team at the Thomson Reuters Foundation, here is some information about the COVID-19 Response:

As the world faces an unprecedented set of challenges posed by the global covid-19 pandemic, the Thomson Reuters Foundation is leveraging its unique blend of journalism and legal skills to strengthen the global response.

Our global legal pro bono service, TrustLaw, is working closely with our legal partners to increase efforts to provide dedicated pro bono support during these challenging times. We want to ensure civil society organizations and social enterprises have the answers they need to mitigate risks and liability and to keep their organisations up and running.

TrustLaw has collated a repository of legal resources from our network designed to address the implications of COVID-19 for our non-profit and social enterprise members. Please see here: http://www.trust.org/trustlaw/coronavirus/

Additionally, TrustLaw is running a series of webinars for NGOs and social enterprises in which our non-profit and social enterprise members will have an opportunity to receive expert advice directly from lawyers on their legal issues related to the pandemic. Topics included will range from employment issues, contractual rights, insurance, GDPR, governance, health and safety. Stay tuned for updates from the TrustLaw team in your region. For any questions please email us at: trustlaw@thomsonreuters.com.

Next, the New Markets Lab team would like to share a new paper written together with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) on trade and the SDGs, which can be found on the NML articles page: https://www.newmarketslab.org/articles, or directly at https://cb4fec8a-9641-471c-9042-2712ac32ce3e.filesusr.com/ugd/095963_a8f166ab17504a2c8c6dd40f6a673025.pdf.

Further, CIPE's Kim Bettcher has been busy collecting resources from other ANDE members of relevance to the policy, legal and regulatory framework, including:

Finally, the PLR Learning Lab thought that ANDE members would find interesting onemore recent link: from the Fraser Institute, Economic Freedom, Public Policy & Entrepreneurship https://www.cato.org/sites/cato.org/files/pubs/efw/efw2019/efw-2019-chapter-4.pdf.

Happy reading, and stay safe everyone!

Regards from the PLR/LL
