International Administration and Policy
The course provides you with the practical knowledge and skills required to both analyze and contribute to the work of international organisations. It will develop your understanding of how seemingly separate international issues interact and affect one another.
We will discuss what instruments exist for international organisations to influence global regimes and how they relate to national legislation and national economic systems.
In an attempt to understand the dynamic determinants of economic and political development, the course examines the implications of global trade in natural resources, specifically extractive industries and agriculture. You will also explore a number of relevant global policy approaches, such as development aid, anti-corruption and democratic development, each of which have had varying levels of success, as well as both intended and unintended consequences.
