The Emerging Markets Theme is an initiative led by the Emerging Markets Institute, Cornell Institute for China Economic Research, and SMART program in collaboration with Cornell China Center, Mario Einaudi Center for International Studies, and Tata Cornell Institute for Agriculture and Nutrition. It focuses on research, broad teaching/learning initiatives, and some external engagement. Each month, we invite an established scholar to give a talk on emerging markets topics.
