INTR 4002: Advanced International Political Economy (Dr Z Ndayi)
There has been a growing interest in IPE since the decline of US hegemony and the establishment of a central authority in international trade. This has been compounded by the proliferation of preferential trade arrangements. The unit focuses on how the World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules and regulations governing multilateralism, plurilateralism and regionalism influence the generation and distribution of income and wealth among the regions of the world. Applications here include analysis of the WTO Article 1; Article XXIV; Special Differential Treatment (S&D) and the Enabling Clause. It also surveys the topic of current economic development challenges within the South, specifically Africa and the appropriate policy response to such challenges. Applications include regional and purilateral institutions such as AU/NEPAD, Europen Union Regional Partnerships Agreement (EU REPAs) with developing countries, Africa Growth and Opportunities Act (AGOA).
