North West University, Astro Villa, Potchefstroom
This workshop builds on a series of earlier workshops arranged by ERSA’s Trade and Industrial Organisation research group. Following our 2010 summer school, we will continue the review of material from Robert Feenstra’s postgraduate textbook, Advanced International Trade (Princeton UP, 2004), concentrating on topics not covered in the 2010 meeting. Following the 2011 workshop there will also be the presentation of some new research. Topics covered will include (a) trade and growth, (b) the political economy of trade policy, (c) firm-level data and international trade, (d) microeconomic evidence on pricing behaviour and (e) geography and trade.
