Objectives

This course aims at familiarising students with the main theoretical models and empirical facts regarding international trade and European economic integration.

Contents

One half of this third-year bachelor course will offer an introduction to the main elements of trade theory, including comparative advantage, the Heckscher-Ohlin model and theories of intra-industry trade. We will also take a look at the current US-China war and Donald Trump's trade policy

The other half of the course is dedicated to an economic evaluation of post-War economic integration in Europe. After an introduction to the history and the institutions of the European Union, the course will focus on the policy areas in which economic integration has progressed the furthest: trade in goods and services, mobility of factors, monetary policy, agriculture, and regional policy.
