Global Political Economy
The Master of Research (MRes) in Global Political Economy: Transformations and Policy Analysis trains doctoral students who can assess the impacts of globalisation both in the short run and longer term using new international data sources and comparative methods. On completion of this programme, students: have a deepened and interdisciplinary understanding of social science discourses and methods for analysing global processes of change both generally and in specified policy areas; are knowledgeable of key contributions to thinking about social, economic and political aspects of the planet as an interdependent social system; and have an understanding of how global and national policy processes interact. The programme equips students for careers as professional researchers in either academic or non academic environments, by developing core research skills. Students are encouraged to review and critically evaluate approaches to research and their application, and to identify and investigate their own original research questions.
