Political Economy

Our course covers all aspects of modern political economy, including: market failure; the political logic of policy choices; and the trade-off between different political goals. Those students who are interested in how institutions shape the behaviour of political actors and how political decisions influence markets and vice versa, profit from our course. It is also a good choice if for those who wish to maintain the flexibility of pursuing a career at an international organisation, a government organisation, a private enterprise or as a political consultant.
