Summary

Do you want to understand the sources of stability and change in the global economic order? International Political Economy prepares you to understand the structures, hierarchies, and power dynamics that regulate finance and trade, drive globalisation and economic nationalisms, and impact the distribution of wealth and poverty across and within states, regions, and the world. You will study production the relationships with law, custom and government along with wealth distribution, preparing you for worldwide careers in development, foreign affairs and public and private sectors.

The programme in International Political Economy introduces students to the conceptual and theoretical terrain of IPE with a particular focus on dimensions of globalization that have re-shaped international flows of capital, goods, and labour. Among the topics covered are neoliberalism, international trade, financialization, gender, poverty and inequality, development, post-development and the rise of economic nationalism. The aim of the programme to provide students with a rigorous academic grounding in the scholarly debates about key substantive issues and the relation between theory and policymaking, with a view to preparing graduates for further studies in IPE or as practitioners and policy-makers in the private and public sectors.
