Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This course studies how the international economic environment affects the development of countries, and discusses the policies that can be adopted in the face of these forces as well as their effects. The course will be taught at an introductory level. Theory, history, empirical evidence, and policy implications will be discussed. Students will develop skills to analyse and think independently about factual information regarding the economic effects of the international environment as well as about the design of policies.

Assessment and permitted materials

Students will be evaluated on the basis of two homeworks (33% each) and an essay (33%). Failure to hand in any of these (by the corresponding deadlines) will result in a negative evaluation of the course.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Students should prove a good command (at least 50%) of the course’s topics. 50% - 60% implies a 4; 60% - 70% a 3; 70% - 85% a 2; above 80% a 1.

Examination topics

There are no exams in this course. The topics treated are international trade, foreign direct investment and multinationals, capital flows, foreign aid and migration.

Reading list

The course's material will be strongly (but not exclusively based) on Krugman, Obstfeld & Melitz: International Economics.
