Global Political Economy (Transformations and Policy Analysis)

This programme considers the dynamics of global transformation and its policy implications, as well as the interrelations with national and regional institutional and social responses to the global political and economic order. You are encouraged to analyse the impact of economic globalisation, examine relationships between global governance and inequality, and understand that analysis and resolution of many of the key problems that confront humanity in the 21st century require new and interdisciplinary academic approaches, innovative methods and policy agendas. If you have completed the MRes, or other significant research training, you may be exempt from the core units. Some self-funded students may still need to take three core research training modules selected from the consortium's offerings in research design, data collection and data analysis. All students have two supervisors with different disciplinary perspectives on global political economy. Students proposing cross-institutional supervision are particularly encouraged. Your supervisors will convene joint meetings on a regular basis. You will find more information on the postgraduate research supervision web page. Students will normally be registered in the school of their first supervisor. This may not be the school that processes your application.
