About

 The International Political Economy (Standard) course from The University of Manchester  reflects the research interests and strengths of our IPE specialists in the Politics discipline area, and focuses on introducing you to a broad range of orthodox and critical theories, and to the politics of globalisation today, through two compulsory units.

Overview

International Political Economy (IPE) or, 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 pressing global issues, such as: world poverty, inequality, gender relations, economic crises, and the environment.
