This course will examine the politics of global economic governance, focusing on how global norms, rules and formal international institutions facilitate cooperation in the world economy. Global economic governance is currently undergoing dramatic changes. In the long term, it is expected that differential growth rates, combined with demographic developments, will shift global economic power from advanced to emerging and developing countries. Now, as we live in a fluid and hybrid world, global economic governance takes multiple forms and these will be discussed. The emphasis is also on the history and architecture of international institutions active in controlling international trade and development. The course is built around the examination of a number of policy-relevant case studies on the most timely issues and relevant institutions involved in global economic governance. Its broad objective is to attain an advanced level of historical and contemporary knowledge of global economic governance institutions and processes.
