International Political Economy - IRPG849

This unit introduces students to the subject area of global political economy and to develop their research and analytical skills. Students will be introduced to political economy theory in some depth and expected to utilise the concepts and theories in examining the politics of the global economy. The basis of this unit is not that political economy is a synthesis of the political and economic but that political economy explains the nature of the international system more holistically. Global Political Economy is explored through the structures within which political (including ideological) and economic activities take place.
