This course is devoted to the study of international trade issues and divided in two parts. The objective of the first part is to introduce to the students at the first-year graduate level, the standard general equilibrium models used in international trade theory. It presents theories that explain the existence of trade between nations or regions and the specificities of these exchanges (inter-sectoral or intra sectoral trade patterns). It also discusses the consequences of trade liberalisation from a normative perspective on the welfare of nations, the impact of trade flows on the income distribution and inequality within and between regions. Traditional theories of trade based on the concept of comparative advantage are examined, together with an introduction to international trade under imperfect competition.

The second part of the course reviews three contemporaneous topics in the light of the presented models. First, the Ricardian model is used to investigate how climate change may reshape trade patterns; conversely, both the Ricardian and the Hecksher-Ohlin models are revisited in the presence of an environmental externality. Second, the implications of globalization for income inequality stemming from the Hecksher-Ohlin model are confronted to the data and theoretical extensions are discussed. Third, the role of trade policy (tariff and non-tariff barriers) and the associated gains and losses are examined using the framework of neoclassic models, with a specific focus on the China-US trade war.
