  • Economy and Society in Developing and Emerging Countries

The seminar deals with issues of development economics, taking a closer look at political, institutional and societal processes that characterize economies and societies in developing and emerging countries. Based on country case studies it discusses macroeconomic factors and aspects of material well-being as well as the role of ethnicity, history, gender norms and the political system.

  • International Business Relations

The seminar will examine bilateral and multilateral economic relations, and how they affect regional alliances, globalisation and the social and economic well-being of nations. International business and increased international trade often results in improved international relations, but it can also lead to disputes between countries (e.g. disagreements on tariffs, trade wars etc.). The seminar encompasses economic considerations as well as the role of politics, history and culture.
