This course provides an introduction to the study of international political economy. In it, we will study the interaction between politics and the several of the major facets of IPE: trade, migration, and the international monetary system. We will also examine how scholars in a variety of fields have approached these issues.
This course is organized topically; although some necessary historical background will be developed during lectures and in some of the readings. After presenting the several different modes of studying IPE, the course will explore trade, migration, and the international monetary system in greater depth. It ends by considering a range of attempts to evaluate the global economy today.
