Module content and teaching

Principal aims

This module is concerned with the governance at both a national and global level, and considers this topic from the perspective of both economics and politics as academic disciplines. The focus is on the extent to which these perspectives complement or conflict with each other. We will study four specific areas where these perspectives overlap.

Principal learning outcomes

The objective is to enable students to develop a broad understanding of the impacts of the differing perspectives of economics and politics as academic disciplines on national and global governance, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each methodological approach, and when they can be complementary.

Timetabled teaching activities

Normally runs in the Spring term. Weekly 2 hour Lectures and 1 hour seminars.
