Assignment Details and Instructions.
The aim of this assignment is to assess the understanding of theories of economic and political power in the global political economy. Therefore, a long or detailed history of the World Bank, the IMF or the WTO is unnecessary and thus the essay may focus on the contemporary period. Instead, essays should focus on the concepts of power and hegemony and if and how these institutions can be considered ‘hegemonic’ with respect to states and organisations in the international economy. It is important that the essay draws on the relevant literature from the reading list.
