The contemporary world is connected by global networks of finance as never before, yet it remains a world where nation-states still exert considerable control. Global flows of money are pivotal in the making of our modern world, but are shaped by regulation in geographically-specific ways to produce a financial landscape of opportunity and threat.

This programme explores this intersection of finance and politics, offering an overview of the changing nature of finance systems and the governance of the global economy, with a specific focus on the forms of money space created across the globe.

Combining the disciplinary expertise of geographers, economists and political scientists, it provides a unique understanding of the making of the contemporary world.

Core study areas include international relations theory, research methods, research design, and international politics: issues and policies.

Optional study areas include institutions and policy making in the European Union, modern languages, comparative foreign policy: issues and cases, independent study and a Jean Monnet module (Europe).
