Course content

This programme unites our academic commitment and expertise in helping understand and develop responses to the most pressing global politcal economy challenges facing humanity today.

You will have the opportunity to analyse powerful global economic governance agencies like the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, alongside the firms and sectors and markets that generate many of the global conflicts, instabilities, crises and challenges we face. You will explore how sectors, markets and firms are linked to, for example, food and health insecurities, unemployment, job precarity, poverty, climate change and pollution.

The programme’s emphasis on real world issues allows us to place special attention on how governance agendas and their impact are experienced, negotiated and responded to in everyday lives and to compare and assess how policymakers and communities seek change.
