GNLU’s Course on Economics of Regulation and Globalization [Feb 12-16, Gandhinagar]: Only 20 Participants; Register Now

About the Course 

Even if regulation is often considered from a merely national point of view, globalization constitutes a new context for regulation. Not only is it impossible to regulate efficiently some issue at the national level (e.g. to solve problems like drug trafficking or climate change), but globalization is also exercising pressures on national regulation for it to remain “attractive” (in order to attract businesses, foreign direct investment and strengthen economic growth).

To face the new challenges of globalization for regulation, some are considering the need for global or regional harmonization, others are emphasizing the benefits of fragmentation.

This course will inquire into this double movement using the tools of law and economics (i.e, considering that law is a tool of social engineering which aims’ to incentivize economic agents) and address questions ranging from accountability standards to environmental and human rights treaties, to WTO regulation or arbitration.

It will enable the students to develop a critical approach regarding these regulations.
