PPR.342 Global Political Economy and the World Today
Tutor: Professor Chris May
This module surveys a range of analyses usually grouped together under the term International (or now Global) Political Economy. The module will further develop knowledge of three main groups of analyses: mainstream liberal analyses; institutional approaches; and critical theories of global political economy. At the end of the module, students will have enhanced knowledge of the range of approaches that can be utilised to understand the contemporary global system from a range of political economic perspectives, appreciate the differences between these approaches and the benefits (and shortcomings) of deploying each general approach and some of its variants when seeking to explain elements of the current global (economic) crisis. The module uses current discussions and deliberations about the global political economy to illustrate the approaches being discussed and to help students develop their appreciation of the complexities of global politics and economics.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
1 essay of 3000 words. Exam: 2 hours.
Lecture (1.5 hours) and seminar (1 hour) weekly.
