|Subject Overview:||This subject provides students with a critical understanding of international political economy, exploring links between international politics and economics in historical and contemporary perspective. An advanced introduction to a range of competing theoretical and methodological approaches to the study of international political economy is provided. Dilemmas of global economic governance are explored in relation to debates surrounding the role of major inter-governmental institutions such as the World Trade Organisation, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and the G20, and via examination of overlapping regimes of public and private power through which global systems of production, consumption, trade and finance are organised and governed. Key contemporary debates are explored, including divisions between developed and developing countries, the management of financial crises and the environmental consequences of a growth-based world economy.|
|Assessment:||Written work totalling 5000 words comprising a 1000 word class test to be held mid-semester (20%) and a 4000 word institutional design project (80%) which will be due at the end of semester.|
