MA International Political Economy (Research) / Course details
Year of entry: 2018
International Political Economy(IPE) (some prefer Global Political Economy) is a vibrant and rapidly growing field of study. It has always been concerned with the connections between politics and economics, the national and the global, under conditions of globalisation. More recently, IPE has become an especially productive field for critical social science research into such pressing global issues as world poverty, inequality, gender relations, economic crises, and the environment. The MA in IPE at Manchester reflects the research interests and strengths of our IPE specialists in the Politics discipline area, and focuses on introducing students to a broad range of orthodox and critical theories, and to the politics of globalisation today, through two compulsory modules. Students can then take a range of optional courses that examine specific issues relating to global governance, development and inequality, gender, environmental politics, global production and work, finance (or financialisation), capitalist diversity, ideology (including neoliberalism), economic crisis, and the politics of resistance and revolt - among others.
