Comparative Political Economy

Dates:
  • Mon 13 Nov 2017 09.00 - 11.00
  Add to Calendar 2017-11-13 9:00 2017-11-13 11:00 Europe/Paris Comparative Political Economy

The seminar introduces comparative research and debates on varieties of market economies. It focusses on approaches that seek to conceptualize different models of capitalism in advanced and peripheral capitalist countries, and investigates the relative role of institutions, interest groups, and ideas in constituting, reproducing and transforming these models. The first part of the course focusses on the influential “Varieties of Capitalism” approach, its precursors and critics, and attempts at expanding it geographically beyond advanced capitalist countries. The second part focuses on issues such as the role of finance and housing, inequality and taxation in contemporary capitalism. The course concludes by bringing politics to political economy.
The aim of the course is twofold. One is to familiarize students with classic texts and recent publications that any emerging scholar of comparative political economy will find useful (the list is in that sense necessary but not sufficient, of course). The other is to help students develop their own research project by encouraging them to see it through the lens of the class readings. Class room discussions will offer ample opportunity to raise concerns related to individual projects
