International Trade II Summer School 2019

iran is the largest economy in the world that is still outside the World Trade Organization. What are the gains and challenges of integrating to the world economy for the Iranian consumers and producers? How would labor markets and consequently political parties respond to international trade?

To answer these policy questions, it is imperative to understand the global economy and its institutions from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. The objective of this summer school is to bring interested Iranian scholars up to speed with the advancements in International Trade Theory with an emphasis on “Tariff Wars” and “Political Polarization”. It will also briefly review models used and developed by modern trade economists to measure the effects of different policy schemes.


The intended audience of the summer school are researchers and graduate students with some research background in Economics, Finance and Public Policy or closely related fields.
