Following decades of political liberalization and increasingly globally integrated markets, domestic politics in many democratic countries have begun to swing towards de-globalization and de-liberalization as mainstream policy objectives. Within this contemporary context, the advanced elective course will overview an academic literature that examines how the economic consequences of globalization affect domestic political behavior. The first three sessions will review the canonical economic models of international trade, international factor mobility, and protectionist trade policy. We will then cover contemporary research that quantitatively relates domestic politics to the following issues of economic integration: (i) international trade, (ii) immigration, (iii) international finance, (iv) labor-saving technology diffusion, (v) cultural convergence, and (vi) global macroeconomic business cycles. The overarching goal of the course is to encourage original thought as to how a political interpretation of standard international economic theory may be useful in explaining current political trends towards de-globalization.
