Today’s global world is characterized by historically high level of international trade, foreign direct investment, and flows of factors of production (people, capital, energy and intellectual property) around the world. However, these flows happen within a complex system of international institutions devoted to regulate, manage, control and enhance the cross-border flows of people, capital, technology and goods. This course is tailored to PhD Students who wish to complement their main field of study with advanced horizontal knowledge of global economic institutions, and their impact on globalization, technological development and management of global challenges. Its adaptive structure ensures that the course integrates in most individual PhD trajectories, supporting ongoing research plans of PhD candidates by allowing them to include or reinforce the international anchoring of their research. The course is recommended for PhD students exploring in their own research project aspects of business, economics, crisis and complexity management, and technological development with a European and/or international outlook, as well as for those interested to better understand the fundamental institutional and economic aspects of global governance.

Class Structure: Every session lasts 2 hours divided in 2 parts of 45 minutes, with a break. The class is structured following a hybrid lecture-seminar format. The class begins with a 45min lecture on the topic of the day, followed by a break. The second half of the course is devoted to preparatory work for the group paper, to discussions on how thematic and content knowledge discussed in the course can be applied to PhD theses, and to general discussions over the theme of the session. Every class is accompanied by a specific literature list made available in advance. Evaluation: Students pursue a group or individual ‘mini-project’, selecting their own research question and doing own empirical or conceptual work. Students might opt-out from the co-authored paper and opt instead for single-authored pieces. The findings of the projects will be presented in the last sessions of the seminar. The grade for co-authored papers is the same for all authors of the paper. The topic of the paper can be selected to be in line with the candidate’s PhD, as long as it maintains a link with the topic of the course. Original research is encouraged, and so is the ambition to proceed to submission for publication after the course. The maximum number of words is 5000 (excluding bibliography and appendix); draft papers will be submitted, presented and discussed in a conference-like seminar in May, and the final version must be submitted by 30 June 2023.
