Research

research overview

  • Professor Shin's current research investigates the historical origins of economic globalization by looking at differential effects of modern warfare on various economic elites. Wars caused more harms to elites who could not relocate their assets abroad or into more productive sectors. These wartime consequences led to the political rise of new global elites who embrace free trade and capital mobility. Policymakers of advanced democracies after the global wars eventually heeded to the policy preferences of these new elites owning mobile assets, altering the global landscape of trade and capital policies in the second half of the twentieth century and beyond. Professor Shin's previous research examined the determinants of immigration policies in wealthy advanced democracies around the world, an issue highly relevant to current debates on immigration and refugee flows. His other research interests include the political economy inequality and redistribution from a historical perspective.
