International Political Economy is not an 'economics' module, this module covers a wide range of subjects including the role of international organisations, as well as states, in global governance; poverty, dependence, and development; productive and reproductive labour; labour markets and globalisation and rising inequality in the 'developed' world. You will analyse specific case studies to look at how people are affected by the global power dynamics in the current global political economy, and make links with the study of transnational relationships across various actors.
