Since January 2020, the IFCCD has partnered with the Groupe de recherche sur l’intégration continentale, attached to the Centre d’études sur l’intégration et la mondialisation (CEIM) of the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), to produce an international watch on culture and e-commerce.

The sixth edition focuses on six interrelated international issues: (1) the plurilateral negotiations on electronic commerce; (2) the efforts of powerful business associations to promote new digital trade rules; (3) the political confrontation between the US administration and several national governments regarding the adoption of digital services taxes; (4) the multilateral negotiations on digital taxation; (5) the Digital Economy Partnership Agreement between New Zealand, Chile and Singapore, as well as (6) the trade negotiations between the US and the UK.
