Regional Development and Globalisation

The analysis of economic interactions between geographical entities, e.g. regions, countries or on the global level, and their impact on development opportunities remains one of the key research priorities. Such interactions work through trade, capital and labour mobility, tax competition, environmental constraints, knowledge spillovers, etc. Agglomeration effects and location choices also affect the productivity and the relative income of a region or country. The ongoing “globalisation” process makes these questions most timely, especially – but not only – for a country like Luxembourg.

Central themes within this research area include Workers Mobility/International Migration, Mobility of Firms, Regional and Urban Interactions, and Trade.
