On this course, you will engage with the most pressing problems in the global political economy and apply innovative ways of thinking to contemporary policy issues such as: sustainable capitalist development; inequalities and poverty; migration; environmental degradation and climate breakdown; rapid technological breakdown and emergent new powers.
