Political Economy Workshop (PEW)

"Protection from FDI and Economies of Scale" w/ Hyeon-Young Ro, PhD Candidate in Political Science
Tuesday, September 22, 2020
12:00-1:20 PM
Off Campus Location
Hyeon-Young Ro's research focuses on domestic firms' preferences and regulations on inbound foreign direct investment (FDI). Her dissertation project examines how industrial features such as economies of scale internal and external to a firm shape attitude towards restrictions on inbound FDI by domestic producers. She also analyzes FDI regulations by disaggregating the types of FDI into two different entry modes: greenfield investment and cross-border mergers and acquisitions. More generally, she studies how domestic special interest groups influence trade and FDI policy making.

PEW provides a unique forum for doctoral students and faculty members to share and develop interdisciplinary research in political economy. Political science and economics are intimately linked in both substance and methodology, and the field of political economy is among the most fertile and enduring areas for cross-disciplinary research in the social sciences. Currently, PEW is the sole interdisciplinary workshop at the University of Michigan wholly dedicated to the exploration of current research in political economy, and thus plays a valuable role in fostering connections among the university’s various departments and schools.
