Determinants of Foreign Direct Investment

About the project

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) inflows are widely perceived to be superior to other types of capital inflows. Apart from offering additional investment resources, FDI may help host countries foster economic development by offering more (and, sometimes, better paid) jobs as well as access to internationally available technologies and managerial know-how. These factors in turn render it easier for the host countries to penetrate foreign markets and make them less prone to sudden reversal of flows in times of crisis. The research project examines the determinants of FDI, in particular political ones, and their effect on different types of FDI, like greenfield and brownfield investments.
