Introduction to the International Political Economy - Woll

Dr. Cornelia Woll's Introduction to the International Political Economy provides students at Sciences Po Paris with a multidisciplinary perspective on the international political economy; Woll stitches together insights from political science, sociology, anthropology, economics, and history to grant her students a thorough understanding of the evolution of the modern international political economic order. Of particular interest to Dr. Woll are the tensions between capitalism and democracy and between national diversity and the integration of nations into cooperative units.

The Political Theory of the Economy - Gourevitch

Professor Alex Gourevitch’s The Political Theory of the Economy uses historical analysis to provide students with an understanding of what an economy is, where it comes from, and why modern economies have taken their contemporary form. And the course investigates a series of critical theoretical questions underlying any economy: What is an economy? Do economies differ from government and, if so, how? What principles can be used to criticize an economy? How do we compare economies to any possible alternatives?

Global Capitalism and Law - Carruthers

Professor Bruce Carruther’s Global Capitalism and Law investigates the consequences of the clash between an increasingly global economy and legal structures and institutions at the level of the nation-state. This mismatch between the scale of markets and the scale of the legal frameworks that regulate those markets makes for a possible flashpoint with social, political, economic, and legal repercussions.

The Political Economy of Government Regulation - Carpenter

In The Political Economy of Government Regulation, Professor Daniel Carpenter puts forward a survey of government regulation in an attempt to answer the following questions: How do regulations arise? Who influences them? Do they achieve their desired outcomes, and how would we know? The course provides Professor Carpenter’s students with an opportunity to reflect on the political atmosphere surrounding any governmental regulation and thus prepares these students to think carefully about regulation and its role in the public sphere.

Democratic Theory - Beerbohm

Early on in the undergraduate experience, Harvard students have the opportunity to take Professor Eric Beerbohm's Foundations of Political Theory which serves as a powerful introduction into these issues. The students are, from the beginning, challenged in their beliefs and thus prompted to think critically about the political institutions around them.

Globlization - Farrell

Globalization, Professor Henry Farrell’s graduate political science course, covers the major political debates of globalization. These debates have defined modern political life, and the debates have become increasingly important given the rise of domestic populism throughout much of the world.
