This course aims to introduce students to key theories and themes in the disciplinary study of International Political Economy. Taking as its point of departure the view that conventional categories of understanding global flows of labour, trade and finance and the global distribution of wealth and poverty they engender have been rendered inadequate by recent transformations of states, national economies and the global regulatory structure, this course aims to equip students with the theoretical vocabulary and empirical knowledge appropriate to understanding the intersection of politics and economics in a global context.
