Overview

You will develop an in-depth understanding of actors and structures governing the global economy. You will then be able to explore a wide variety of topics ranging from the politics of international production, trade and finance to the challenges of global economic governance, dynamics of North-South relations, patterns of inter-state economic rivalry and the future of international capitalism.

The Global Political Economy (Part-time) at Birkbeck, University of London  is led by our Department of Politics, which has a strong research reputation in this field. You will gain the perspectives of internationally renowned law, economics and management experts at Birkbeck who provide theoretical and policy insight into some of the most vital issues facing humanity today. This course will also give you the opportunity to undertake a major piece of supervised independent research on a topic of your choice.
