Global Political Economy
This course gives the students an advanced introduction to the contemporary theories, practical issues, and research approaches in global political economy. The key topic covered by the course is international cooperation in various policy areas and the role of international institutions in facilitating global governance of global issues such as trade, finance, development, climate change, and other social and macroeconomic policies.
The course is a fine balance between the traditional International Relations courses that focus on security and foreign policies and the courses often titled as Politics of International Economic Relations that focus on trade and monetary policies. In that, this course discusses theories, research methods, globalization and its impact on national public policy substance and processes, evolving relations between states and markets, and among states.
