Objectives and learning outcomes of the course
The course aims to provide students with an understanding of theories of international trade and of empirical research on trade issues. A key objective is to equip students with the skills and knowledge required to critically assess both older and more recent theories of international trade. In addition, it aims to provide them with the analytical tools to evaluate empirical research on trade issues. Given that the focus of the course is on international trade and developing countries, it also aims to enable students to evaluate the relevance of theoretical, empirical and policy-related material on international trade for developing countries.
