Course Description

‘IPE at its most fundamental, in short, is about the complex interrelationship of economic and political activity at the level of international affairs’ (Cohen, 2008, p. 16).

As the quote above shows, International Political Economy (IPE) is a thoroughly interdisciplinary subject which focuses on the interaction between politics and economics on an international scale. This course aims to provide students with an in-depth and academically challenging introduction to this field of study. Students will learn about the contending theoretical approaches to the study of IPE, the history of the global economy, and the key issues in global economic relations.
