This course is a graduate-level introduction to International Political Economy (IPE). It focuses on the dynamic interaction of states and market/non-state actors in the evolving global economic order. It aims to expose students with various key conceptual tools and theoretical approaches needed to analyse main contemporary issues in international political economy in the conduct of diplomacy, beyond bilateral deliberations. Following the introduction in the first part of the course, the subsequent part discusses different theoretical approaches to IPE and the final part explores various issue areas ranging from global trade and finance to regionalism and regionalization particularly in East Asia since the 1997-98 financial crisis.
