This course will introduce students to quantitative and modelling techniques employed in global trade analysis. The course consists of two main parts. The first introduces important concepts and provides theoretical foundations for understanding flows and patterns of trade across countries. The second deals with structural and econometric modelling and empirical measurement of the links between trade and economic welfare. Topics covered will include regional economic integration, exchange rates and trade, trade policy and economic welfare, trade and environment, and trade, economic growth and poverty reduction. Students will complete a research paper as part of the course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Understand theories in international trade analysis and a series of international trade and economic policy issues.
- Empirically analyse models of the determinants of international trade flows.
- Design and develop a substantial and innovative research paper in international economics based on replicating and extending an existing work.
