Issues and Actors in Global Economic Governance

How and why the global political economy is governed, by whom, and for whose benefit, are fundamental issues that impact upon global economic stability, growth, and development. This module examines the evolving institutional architecture and the key conceptual issues in the contemporary practice of global economic governance. Through a focus on the main actors and issues in global economic governance, you will be provided with the knowledge and tools to address these questions. This module will equip you with an understanding of the contemporary actors, forums, and institutions that provide the main pillars of global economic governance.

The module is taught by Dr. André Broome. As with other MA modules at Warwick, Issues and Actors in Global Economic Governance is taught through a combination of introductory presentations, intensive reading by students, and class discussions.

Seminars begin in week 1 of the autumn term and finish in week 20, which is the last week of the spring term in the following year. The exceptions are weeks 6 and 16, which are PAIS Reading Weeks.

Seminars are an opportunity for students to express their ideas and ask questions based on a combination of the reading they have done and the natural flow and progress of discussions. Students should come to seminars having done the essential readings from the reading list and should expect to contribute to class discussions.

You may consult with your tutor throughout the year either in seminars, advice and feedback hours, and at other times by appointment.

Course image PO9D9:Transitional Justice and International Development 2017/18

Transitional justice can be defined as the mechanisms and processes designed to address mass human rights violations of the past. The connections between transitional justice and international development are increasingly acknowledged as relevant for both improving practice and theory in the different domains of activity and intervention. Scholars, policy makers and practitioners are posing questions such as can economic, social and cultural rights be included in transitional justice interventions? How are human rights connected to development? Can development be a form of justice for individuals and communities who have had their human rights violated? Can the inclusion of development issues undermine the pursuit of justice for human rights violations?
