Erik van der Marel

Erik van der Marel is a Senior Economist at ECIPE. His areas of expertise are in services trade and political economy of services trade policy, Russia’s trading patterns, plus total factor productivity (TFP) and regulation including trade policy in developing countries. His research has been concentrated on empirical issues such as analyzing patterns of services trade economics, productivity and comparative advantage, but also on trade policy such as regulation, the GATS, PTAs, and NTBs in developing countries.

Prior to his appointment at ECIPE, Erik was lecturing at the London School of Economics where he taught International Political Economy and The Political Economy of International Trade at post-graduate level. Before the LSE he was a Research Fellow at the Groupe d’Économie Mondiale (GEM) institute in Paris at Sciences-Po. In the past, Erik also gained various professional experiences as a consultant at the European Commission (DG Internal Market) OECD, APEC and as visiting researcher the World Bank. Furthermore, he has also worked for one year at the Euronext-NYSE stock exchange as a strategic research analyst.

Erik received his PhD in international economics from Sciences-Po Paris under the supervision of Professor Patrick Messerlin and Bernard Hoekman, specializing in links between regulation and productivity, comparative advantage in services, and the heterogeneous trade effects of services regulation.

His current work includes developing the Services Trade Competitiveness Diagnostic Toolkit for the World Bank’s Trade Department for which he also constructed empirically a tradability index for services for trade policy makers. Other recent trade policy work for the World Bank currently focuses on Bulgaria, Russia and Pakistan. Erik has been teaching trade at the ULB since 2014.

    Patterns of Trade Restrictiveness in Online Platforms: A First Look

    By: Martina F. Ferracane Erik van der Marel 

    This paper develops a digital platform restrictiveness index for 64 countries based on ECIPE’s Digital Trade Estimates (DTE) database and the Digital Trade Restrictiveness Index (DTRI). We identify specific restrictions that affect online platforms with a focus on online search, e-commerce and social media. The results show that both OECD and non-OECD countries show high levels of trade restrictions on online platforms. Moreover, some of the most restricted...

    Do Data Policy Restrictions Inhibit Trade in Services?

    By: Martina F. Ferracane Erik van der Marel 

    This paper examines whether restrictive data policies impact trade in services over the internet. We have collected comparable information on a variety of policy measures that regulate data for a wide group of countries for the years 2006-2016. This information is compiled in a weighted index that assesses the restrictiveness of these countries’ data policies. We distinguish between policies regulating the cross-border movement of data and policies regulating the...

    Do Data Policy Restrictions Impact the Productivity Performance of Firms and Industries?

    By: Martina F. Ferracane Erik van der Marel Guest Author 

    This paper examines how policies regulating the cross-border movement and domestic use of electronic data on the internet impact the productivity of firms in sectors relying on electronic data. In doing so, we collect regulatory information on a group of developed economies and create an index that measures the regulatory restrictiveness of each country’s data policies. The index is based on observable policy measures that explicitly inhibit the cross-border...

    By: Hanna Deringer Fredrik Erixon Philipp Lamprecht Erik van der Marel

Used by developed as well as developing countries, they aim to promote the use of local inputs and serve the purpose of fostering domestic industries. Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the USA are very frequent users of LCRs. India is by far the most prominent user, followed by Brazil. While LCRs might have perceived benefits related to specific policy...
