|Content||This course investigates the linkages between international trade and the environment from both a theoretical and empirical viewpoint. It investigates the theoretical links between international trade and sustainability in two ways by studying the link between trade and resource use on the one hand and trade and industrial pollution on the other. It then reviews the empirical
evidence linking trade to environmental outcomes using the theory as a guide to evaluate and critique the literature.
