Marietta Angeli researches the impact of Rules of Origin on market access barriers. Quantitative analysis on these issues is scarce: the number and complexity of trade agreements have mushroomed over recent years and their political economy implications are little understood. Marietta’s research fills this gap by generating the largest quantitative data set on Rules of Origin in cooperation with the Trade and Agriculture directorate at the OECD. She applies this data to analyse the utilisation and restrictiveness of Rules of Origin in North-South trade agreements.
Before starting her PhD in 2017, Marietta worked as a consultant at UNCTAD in Geneva and as a senior manager for the Federation of German Industries. While studying, Marietta held a consultancy at the Instituto el Sur in Arequipa, Peru, where she improved export obstacles for remote agricultural smallholders. During internships with the German Institute for International and Security Affairs in Berlin and at CUTS International, Geneva, she worked on topics in the trade-development nexus.
Marietta graduated from her Master’s at IHEID in Geneva in 2015 and holds a Bachelor in Economics and Politics from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). Marietta is a proud alumna of the United World College in Eswatini.
