The New Global Division of Labour

General Information


3rd Kiel Institute Summer School on Economic Policy
Kiel, Germany, June 28th – July 3rd, 2009  




1. Motivation

The recent wave of globalisation has challenged the traditional paradigm on which our view of the international division of labour was based.  A new paradigm is gradually evolving and the purpose of the Summer School is to take stock of these developments and assess their policy implications.
The Summer School addresses graduate students with a strong academic record and a keen interest in policy issues, and young members of policy institutions, such as ministries and international organisations, with a graduate degree. The size of the group is limited to 25 participants.
The courses combine a thorough theoretical and methodical underpinning with a clear policy orientation on “how to put theory into practice”. Students are expected to participate actively in debates on the topics discussed in class. Participants will be hosted in the guest house of the Institute ( “Haus Weltclub” )*. 

2. The Speakers

David Autor, MIT
Jorgen Elmeskov, OECD
James Markusen, University of Colorado at Boulder

Giovanni Peri, University of California at Davis

3. Fees

The fee to attend the course amounts to € 1.500. The Kiel Institute shall, however, award scholarships amounting to € 800 per student, so that enrolled students need only pay the remaining € 700. The fee covers full board at the guest house of the Kiel Institute as well as the courses themselves. Participants need to arrange and pay for own flights to the Hamburg or Luebeck airports. The Luebeck airport is served by Ryanair, Hamburg is served by Hapag-Lloyd and major carriers. Public transpor-tation is available from both airports to the centre of Kiel.Kiel.
