Course Aims

This is an introductory course on international political economy. It is structured around key issues of contemporary international political economy, including production, trade, finance and technology, with an emphasis on how various theoretical perspectives and levels of analysis (global, regional, national, city) can help us understand these issues. Discussion will transcend the international/global level, and covers domestic affairs, and interactions between the two levels of analysis. IPE is a thriving sub-discipline that seeks to combine political and economic variables in its analysis of the changing global economy and students should be well prepared, by the end of the course, for deeper study in this area in third and fourth year and Master’s studies.
