Global Political Economy (GPE) or International Political Economy (IPE) is an interdisciplinary academic field within economics and international relations which draws inputs from political science, history and cultural studies. This course is on the study of the theories and concepts of Global Political Economy. We will discuss a variety of topics such as international finance, international trade, production and development, financial crises, global markets and globalization. Despite that economic issues will be examined, the emphasis, however, will be placed on the political problems that arise as a result of the international economic integration between states and institutions.
