544 Advanced Topics in International Trade

This seminar will explore recent scholarship related to international economics and international trade institutions (such as the WTO, the EU, and NAFTA).  Topics will include the domestic political economy of trade liberalization, trade remedy law, institutional design, and compliance with dispute resolution systems.  The seminar is designed to be highly participatory with students taking the lead in class discussions.  Some knowledge of international law is helpful but not required.  Grades are based on a series of papers written during the semester and class participation.

Grade Basis:  Grades are based on the six short papers, your leadership of class discussion, and class participation.  There is no final exam and no final paper.  This course can be taken together with a 2 or 3 credit independent study to fulfill a writing requirement.
