This is an introductory course to the subject area of international political economy. It is not a course on economics and students are not expected to have any background in the study of economics although some economic concepts will be employed and discussed. Instead, the focus of course is on the politics of (international) economic activity and phenomena. The course aims to introduce students to the subject area of international political economy and to develop their research and analytical skills in the study thereof. It is intended for students who have had no previous background in the subject. The unit will include a review of the principal theoretical approaches to the study of international political economy as well as examine the major issue areas in the post-war global economy: trade, international finance, foreign direct investment, international debt, globalization and regionalisation.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify enduring economic ideas that shape state interests in economic policy choices and international economic cooperation, as well as basic theoretical terms and concepts
- Identify enduring International Relations/International Political Economy theoretical perspectives regarding the sources of state and societal interests.
- Apply specific theoretical and policy concepts to historical and contemporary cases
- Evaluate varied theoretical and policy concepts as they help explain historical and contemporary cases
- Design tests of theoretical and policy concepts to show how they help explain historical and contemporary cases
The course is conducted through seminars with an emphasis on interactive teaching aimed at engaging all students in active participation.
