Course Description: This course offers a study of one of the central questions in theories of International Relations and International Political Economy, why states cooperate. The course explores dynamics of power, interests, and institutions underlying cooperation among sovereign states. The course is separated into four phases of world history. The first part of the course discusses the post-World War II era until the fall of the Berlin wall in 1989. Topics in this section include the bipolar world order and its implications, the Bretton Woods system, and modern globalization. The second part addresses the unipolar moment after the dissociation of the Soviet Union until the global financial crisis of 2007-09. The third part explores the post-crisis years of 2009-2016. The fourth part assesses indications of an emerging multipolar world disorder in the wake of Brexit and the United States Presidential elections of late 2016. The course concludes with a review of the European Union, noting growing uncertainty while stressing avenues for future international cooperation. The course utilizes the theoretical canon of international cooperation and explanations for cooperation when reviewing episodes of world history. Empirical analysis draws on examples taken from securities studies, economic cooperation, and financial regulation.
