Final year module
Lecturer: Andre Broome
Contemporary International Political Economy A will examine the emergence of an offshore economy. The module is concerned with the contemporary relationship between the state and sovereignty, and an internationalizing economy. The module examines the workings of the Euromarket, tax havens, export processing zones, flag of convenience and e-commerce.
Contemporary International Political Economy B examines the contemporary challenges of international economic governance in an era of globalisation. The module is concerned with investigating not only how international economic organizations influence states and markets - and vice versa - but the politics behind and generated by this influence.
At the end of the module the student should be able to:
Demonstrate a sound theoretical understanding of the key conceptual issues relating to globalisation.
Apply these to current developments within the international economy.
