0.5 Credit

Hours per week:
  • Lecture/Discussion: 3

The (mostly) open, liberal international economy constructed since World War II is widely seen to be facing an existential crisis. The election of Donald Trump, the rise of populism in Europe, the growing power of non-western states (most notably China), and the COVID-19 pandemic have changed the contours of world politics. This course explores contemporary trends in the global political economy and the prospects for significant conflict and transformation in the years to come.
