International Trade

The work of the group focuses on the micro-economic aspects of international and spatial economics. Topics covered include international trade, foreign direct investment, and the causes and consequences of globalization.

There is a fortnightly seminar series with external speakers held in the department on Tuesdays at 2.30pm, and an informal weekly workshop at 4pm on the same day where faculty and students present their work in progress.
