The main objective of this course, presented by the Institute for Capacity Development, is to broaden participants’ understanding of economic, monetary, and financial integration. Drawing on theory and on case studies from experiences in several regions, the course covers requirements for economic and monetary integration; trade, financial, and monetary integration; costs and benefits of the integration process; and political economy aspects of integration.
Workshops are designed to deepen participants’ knowledge of specific issues that may emerge in economic and monetary integration. Participants use case studies with country data to make assessments and are required to deliver their conclusions in short presentations.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
Analyze the various types of regional integration and cooperation, as well as the dynamics of the integration process.
Analyze the costs and benefits of various integration schemes for their countries.
Assess the degrees of convergence in various macroeconomic variables in the run-up to deeper integration, and the degree of convergence afterward.
Summarize economic and political arguments regarding integration that may affect their own country.
