Abstract: This study examined the nexus between globalization and economic growth in European countries from 1990 to 2018 with the application of ARDL and Bounds test. Data was collected from the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development and World Development Indicator, respectively. The major findings that originated from this study are as follows. The lag value of economic growth has a significant positive relationship with its present value. Globalization index variables such as net FDI inflows and trade openness brought about economic growth in the European countries. This shows that the impact of globalization has been positive on the economies of the European countries in the last four decades. Furthermore, due to the emergence of these pertinent findings, the following recommendations are made for the policy makers in the European countries: globalization is a viable platform through which the European economies could achieve a sustainable economic growth in the short run. Therefore, whenever sustainable economic growth is the goal of the European policy makers, implementation of the policies that stimulate sporadic inflows of FDI should be embarked upon. Similarly, trade openness of these countries should be improved through exports of more value-added goods and services.
