Course Description: Since the end of World War II, the world has not only become more integrated in economic terms, it has also seen a proliferation of international institutions and organizations that seek to regulate these emerging global markets. This course familiarizes students with the main theoretical approaches to international cooperation and the key international institutions of the world economy. The first part of the course introduces the main theoretical approaches that provide alternative explanations for key questions about international cooperation. The course considers the following topics: the conditions under which states create international institutions; the design of international institutions and their influence on state behavior; changes in international institutions; interactions between international institutions. The second part of the course analyzes these topics with regard to specific institutions, including the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, the G7 and G20, the International Labour Organization, the World Intellectual Property Organization, and the Basel Accords. The third part of the course is devoted to the development and discussion of research questions and research designs that serve as the basis for student term papers.
