Presentación

Offered in collaboration with the Department of Political Science and International Studies, this programme combines theoretical approaches to international political economy with practical experience of development to create a unique, multidisciplinary degree.

Issues examined include: competing theories of political economy and political development; how theories of development link to development practice; different political systems and their histories; the complex relationship between political economy and development, including trade, financial systems, and aid; the impact of political systems and political actors on developmental success and failure; the impact of the global, regional and national political economy on aid and donor policies.
