Small European Countries in Economic Internationalisation: An Economic Historical Perspective
Umeå University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Economic History.
2006 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper addresses small state theories and characteristics. In economic theories foreign trade is of great interest since small states are more dependent than large ones on this trade. A special approach, formulated by Katzenstein, is shown to be time-bound. In the period from the 1930s to the 1980s small states’ adaptation to the outside world to a great extent took the shape that Katzenstein discussed which among other things meant democratic corporatism. This conclusion is arrived at when a long-time perspective is applied. Small state characteristics are mostly of interest from the 19th century. Up to World War I inter-nationalisation was growing but after that it did not increase until the 1970s when a new internationalisation wave came. Especially in the second wave, which could also be called the globalisation wave, thoroughgoing adaptations of the small states were conspicuous and international organisations became essential.
