Institute for International Economic Policy

University Seminar on Regionalism and Foreign Direct Investment

The University Seminar on "Regionalism and Global Economic Development" examines the consequences of expanded reliance on regional agreements. The focus is on the economic and political effects of this potentially profound change in the world's economic organization. Topics include both the causes of regionalism and its impact on the multilateral trading system, US economic leadership, and the balance of power in a multi-polar world. Core participants consist of GW faculty members; faculty from Georgetown University, the University of Maryland, and the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS); and professionals from organizations such as International Monetary Fund (IMF), the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), and the American Enterprise Institute (AEI).

These events are open to the public. Please contact iiep@gwu.edu if you are interested in receiving regular notification of upcoming events.

Unless indicated, all seminars will be held in the Kendrick Conference Room, Department of Economics, 2115 G St., NW, Room 321.
