Course content

The MA Global Political Economy explores how the distribution of economic resources is subject to multiple and often competing political pressures, and how the effects of these pressures are experienced differently throughout the world. It is clear that the political economy has to be understood in global terms, and our academics are redefining the discipline by bringing together ideas, approaches and methods from a diverse range of disciplines to critically analyse emergent issues and problems.
On this degree you will apply innovative ways of thinking to contemporary policy problems, developing critical insights on issues such as unstable capitalism, inequalities and poverty, migration, environmental degradation and climate change, rapid technological change, and emergent new powers. In doing so, you will acquire an understanding of the interplay of economy, polity, society and culture. You will also develop a detailed appreciation of the interplay between actors and structures at different levels of the global system: from the grass-roots and local levels, through community to the nation state, to the global system and its institutions.

The core themes covered in this programme are:
• Globalisation
• Poverty
• Capitalism and crisis
• Sustainable development
• Governance
