Make Trade not War? Economic Exchange and Interstate Conflict - 11070 - POLS 3500 - 811
Topical Section Description: As we live in an age of governments being involved in trade conflicts, we can observe that economic and political exchange between states is deeply intertwined. In this context, measures of economic statecraft, such as sanctions, have become important tools of foreign policy, for instance, for the US government in its trade dispute with China and for Japan in its dispute with Korea. Is economic exchange a source of interstate conflict? Or can international trade, FDI or economic interdependence foster peace or help to avoid conflict? Is economic statecraft merely symbolic or can it be a successful tool of foreign policy? This course offers an introduction to the study of International Political Economy (IPE) that gives you the conceptual tools to deepen your understanding of the connections between economic exchange, peace and conflict. While many IPE studies show positive impacts of trade and FDI on diplomatic relations between states, there are also examples for state relations characterized by ”hot economics, cold politics“ and vice versa, especially in East Asia. Moreover, there are differences regarding the impact of economic exchange when considering militarized and non-militarized conflicts. Readings include recent historical documents and introductory texts from the field of International Political Economy.
