This course is designed to broaden students’ understanding of the international political economy with a focus on monetary and financial issues. The study of international political economy is essential to understand the interplay between states and markets, power and wealth, and economics and politics in a rapidly changing world. To this end, the course introduces major contributions from IPE literature, and emphasizes the application of various theoretical frameworks to real world cases. We will begin with the review of various research perspectives of IPE, such as liberalist, realist, and radical perspectives and the brief history and development of monetary and financial regime in the post-World War II period. We will then investigate the theory and policy of international monetary and financial relations, the tradition of financial repression and the evolution of financial liberalization in both developed and developing countries, regime analysis, international capital flows, financial crises, international financial institutions, and global governance for the international financial system. In addition, we will emphasize current global monetary and financial issues and policies by reading newspaper articles or magazines.    

 

 

Requirement:

 

1) Class Participation (30%)

Four or five students will present an overview of an assigned article or book chapters based on their research concerns in each class. Student should identify several issues and discuss them in every class. During the presentation, the instructor will intervene from time to time to give some comments and lead class discussions. Students are expected to attend all classes, so absences without pre-notification to the instructor will affect the course grade adversely. Students should read the assigned readings before class meetings and prepare for class discussion. Contributions to the class discussion including prepared comments and energetic participation will be considered in your grade.

 

2) Two Book Reviews (20%)

Each student should choose two books which are relevant to his/her research concerns, and prepare reviews of 3-5 pages each typewritten and doubled-spaced. The book reviews should contain the following points:

  1. Information about the book (Author, book title, place, publisher, year and price)

2. Subject of inquiry (the purpose of the research, the type of methodology, and the

    scope of the research)

  3. Content of the book

  4. Conclusion of the book

  5. Your commentary

 

According to your assigned schedule you will present them during our class.  

 

3) Research Paper and Presentation (50%)

The research paper should be typewritten double-spaced with footnotes, and 25-30 pages in length. Students should use more than fifteen academic sources (academic journal articles and books). The reference list and citations of references in the text should follow The Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. The topic should be taken from one of the issues and on empirical case studies that we have studied and discussed in the class. The outline of the paper should be submitted before February 14, and approved by the instructor. The paper proposal should follow this guideline: 1. Paper Topic, 2. Research questions, 3. Brief summary of your argument, and 4. References.
