Chad P. Bown, associate professor of economics at Brandeis International Business School, has joined the Council on Foreign Relations. A specialist in areas of international trade laws and institutions, professor Bown is now a term member at the prestigious New York-based think tank.

According to its web site, "the Council on Foreign Relations is an independent, national membership organization and a nonpartisan center for scholars dedicated to producing and disseminating ideas so that individual and corporate members, as well as policymakers, journalists, students, and interested citizens in the United States and other countries, can better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other governments."

Professor Bown holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin. He is a Non-Resident Fellow of The Brookings Institution (Washington, DC), and he has been a visiting scholar at The World Bank and The Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI) in Bonn, Germany. His research is currently focused on China and other developing countries' integration into the global economy, international trade disputes in the WTO system as well as national use of trade remedy laws such as antidumping and safeguards.
