Corporate Lobbying and the Global Economy

This course centers on one of the most important yet under-appreciated aspects of contemporary political life: the governance of the global economy by private actors. It covers both theoretical and empirical perspectives on how, when, and why private actors are able to influence international institutions, global standards and regulations, and international negotiation processes. Some basic familiarity with international political economy (IPE), economics, and international relations will be extremely helpful. Satisfies the Integrative Experience requirement for BA-POLISCI majors.
