Public Policy under Globalisation

Our aim is to analyse the role of public policies and institutions under globalisation, addressing questions such as: What are the effects of trade policies on international trade and foreign direct investment, employment and productivity, and welfare Which policies help easing and accelerating the adjustment processes demanded by globalisation? How can welfare state policies shape the effects of globalisation, and what are the implications of welfare state policies on aggregate employment and productivity? What types of institutions become ineffective under globalisation, and how can societies respond to this?
