Political economy deals with the interactions of states and markets. In other words, it is concerned with the economic effects of political choices and the impact of economic conditions on the decisions and performance of political actors. The goal of this seminar is to provide an overview of how the discipline of political economy theorizes about and empirically investigates competition, conflict, and cooperation. After an introduction to political economy and its methods, several broad questions related to competition are discussed in the first part of the seminar. What are the economic effects of political competition? How do states and firms compete in the global economy for market shares and finances? The seminar then moves on to analyze the political economy of conflict. What are the domestic and international reasons for political conflict and civil war? Under which economic conditions does international conflict take place and how is it economically different from domestic violent conflict? The final part of the class asks the question of how cooperation arises within and between political systems. How does the economic environment shape the emergence of domestic coalitions? What are the reasons for states to cooperate on economic issues?
