International Institutions & Global Governance (Module)

Module description

This module aims to provide an advanced introduction to global governance and the key international institutions that form the basis of global governance. It will give a detailed knowledge of the institutional landscape through which international political and economic interaction is mediated. The analysis is grounded in the theories of International Political Economy (IPE) / International Relations (which you are expected to be familiar with – if you have not covered these elsewhere you will need to catch up in advance).
