About

The Political Economy of Europe programme from London School of Economics and Political Science provides a historically grounded, multi-disciplinary analysis of key political and economic processes and problems in Europe, relating both to the 'project' of EU integration and to domestic policy challenges and national transformation processes.

Overview

This Political Economy of Europe programme from London School of Economics and Political Science draws on different theoretical approaches to political economy (positive, comparative and international political economy) and is taught by staff with academic expertise in the field and experience of policy-making in different parts of Europe. It will equip you with a rounded understanding of the political, economic and institutional context of key policy dilemmas and empirical puzzles in the EU as a whole and in its individual member states. 

You will be able to choose from specialist courses in aspects of political economy including monetary union, welfare states, labour markets, models of capitalism, fiscal (dis-)integration, transition and development, and others. In addition, you will be able to choose wider option courses, covering policy-making, governance and politics in the EU; European identity, ethnicity and society; and courses with a more geographical focus. You will also attend a programme of guest lectures from distinguished outside speakers, including business leaders and policy-makers.
