About the Workshop

The Mainz-Groningen Workshop on Foreign Direct Investment and Multinational Corporations is scheduled to take place each year in fall (November) and jointly organized by Konstantin Wacker (University of Groningen), Philipp Harms (University of Mainz), and Nils Steiner (University of Mainz) and supported by the research unit “Interdisciplinary Public Policy” (IPP) at University of Mainz.

Calls for papers are usually issued in late spring (May/June).

The goal of the workshop is to foster the understanding of the role of FDI and multinationals in the world economy from a multi-disciplinary perspective, especially its interactions with politics, institutions, distributional aspects, and perceptions towards globalization. Furthermore, we support the interaction of researchers at various stages of their career.

Keynote speakers on the first four workshops were Ron Davies, Beata S. Javorcik, Farid Toubal, and Carolina Sanchez-Villegas. Papers presented by workshop participants have been published in leading general interest and international economics field journals, such as Journal of International Economics, European Economic Review, or Canadian Journal of Economics.

Programs and abstracts of papers presented of previous workshops are available for [2018] [2017] [2016] [2015].
