Globalized production entails large flows of goods that are for 80% of them shipped over the seas. It is therefore essential to understand the motivation of all stakeholders participating in the maritime transport of goods, as well as their interaction with other actors of trade flows: cities, ports, and the broader hinterland.

The Paris School of Economics is pleased to welcome five economists working on international trade, shipping, geography and networks during a one-day workshop. The workshop will be the place for interaction with other economists interested by these topics.

The Globalization Chair aims to create a privileged forum for reflection, exchange and transfer between researchers and all entities of society interested in the reconfiguration of globalization and its implications. The approach favored by the chair is empirical. The research is characterized by the use of advanced econometric techniques and the exploitation of various databases combining data from companies, but also more recent sources from the media, NGOs or the monitoring of container ships.
