Does the growing influence of Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRICs) change the way the global political economy is governed? What are the political roots of global trade and finance? What is the impact of the international economy on inequality and development? Answering these questions requires you to combine economics and political science. In our Master’s specialisation in International Political Economy (IPE) you will uncover the economic and political dimensions of global issues and power struggles behind policy choices.

Understanding the world

International Political Economy at Radboud University teaches you to go beyond the surface of daily news and to disentangle deeper global structures of economic growth and the distribution of wealth and power that underlie today’s problems of global economic governance. We challenge you to not only understand and explain ‘the world’, but to view and assess it from the perspectives of different stakeholders, while understanding the social and economic structures and institutions enabling or hindering them in pursuing their objectives.

Combined approach

International Political Economy at Radboud University combines approaches from (International) Economics and Political Science. We strongly believe that in order to grasp the complexity of many of today’s global issues it is essential to understand and combine the different approaches political scientists and economists take: the economic and financial crisis; the race for and exploitation of natural resources; attempts of national governments to deal with global change. The programme thus offers courses that combine both disciplines.

  • Our students rate this Master’s programme 8,4 out of 10 according to the National Student Survey 2017.
