Abstract (Swedish)
Using the three dimensions of the KOF index of globalization and average years of schooling the thesis examines openness as an effect on the extent of education. Econometrics is used to estimate regressions with panel data covering more than 100 countries. The results suggest that the impact of openness on education differs between high and lower income countries. Quite interestingly, the economic dimension of globalization is negatively correlated with the extent of education in lower income countries. The social dimension of globalization is positively related to education, but also only in lower income countries. Political globalization is positively related to a longer extent of education in both high income and lower income countries.
