Global Political Economy - POL303

This unit focuses on the relationship and interaction between politics/states and economics/markets at the national, international and global levels. Global/International Political Economy (IPE) is concerned with the study of those global problems and issues that cannot adequately be explained by recourse to economic, political, or sociological analysis alone. IPE is the study of international affairs that focuses on the elements of complex interdependence that define many of our most pressing problems today; it breaks down the barriers that separate and isolate the traditional methods of analysis, seeking a comprehensive understanding of issues, events and units of analysis.
