Game Theory and Political Economy (Module)

Module description

The aims of this course are to introduce students to the idea of strategic thinking. Most situations analysed in Politics and Economics involve more than one actor- how do we organise our thinking to take account of how people react to others.

This module introduces students to key analytical tools and concepts that have been extensively used in economics and political science to study strategic interactions. The module uses formal models and deductive reasoning to develop these concepts. Applications will focus on political economy.
