Reflective Blog on International Political Economy. For the assessment, you need to write three blog posts on different topics. There is no precise length for each post, but the general guidance is that posts should be somewhere between 450 and 550 words. The posts together must not be longer than 1500 words overall but their individual length can differ. For example, one post may have 460 words, another 490 words and the third 550 words.
Reflect on the topics of the module and how they relate to current events in IPE and Global Development. Secondly, reflect on the impact of what you are studying on your own research. Also express your thoughts and ideas and record the questions that emerge from the module’s readings and other activities. However, your blog should reflect how these thoughts and ideas develop through the module.
Whereby, find inspiration to expand the module’s topics in any direction that you think is most relevant be that conceptually. Also be that in relation to current events in international relations. The blog should help you to be original in your thinking as well as constructively critical. explore integrating different modes of representation of your ideas such as images, etc.
Topics from the module are the following (the blog post must be divided into 3 sections with each one about a specific topic): The Uneven Development of Capitalism, The transnationalisation of production and the new international division of labour, Financialisation and the global economic crisis, The WTO and the changing role of trade, Globalisation, the state and rIsing powers, Challenging neoliberal globalisation, Globalisation and forces of resistance,
