Course Description: Globalization refers to the growing inter dependency between nations and firms through international trade and factor mobility. Understanding the process of globalization requires the perspectives of many different disciplines, of which International Economics (international trade) and International Business (international investment and multinational enterprises) are two of the most relevant. This course combines insights of these two complementary fields and offers an integrated perspective on the (changing) role of nations and firms in the global economy, with a clear focus on the spatial implications. The course covers the theory and practice of globalization, including international trade, the multinational enterprise and foreign direct investment (fragmentation, outsourcing). The main theories with respect to international trade are analyzed at length. Special attention is given to the implications of trade for the distribution of income. Trade policies are used to stimulate as well as to frustrate the international exchange of goods and services, both at the national and the supranational level (WTO; regional trade blocs). The focus in the second part of the course is on the theory and practice of trade policies and the main institutions and players in the field of international trade.
