The course International Trade: Negotiation and Agreements, consists of three modules designed to progressively introduce students into the complex world of trade negotiations, with focus on the World Trade Organization. Module 1 starts with supplying broad conceptual toolkits for understanding International Political Economy (IPE); an essential framework for an increasingly contested global economy. It then introduces the concept of Economic Diplomacy as a set of tools states use in order to advance their interests abroad - and at home. Then students are introduced to theories of trade bargaining, as a subset of economic diplomacy. Module 2 shifts focus to the evolution of the WTO, and its current institutional arrangements. Broad consideration is also given to the various trade instruments, from tariffs to intellectual property rights, inter alia, governed at the WTO level, and updates students on current debates over the future of the WTO. Module 3 obliges students to utilise the toolkits and institutional knowledge developed in modules 1 and 2 in an intensive trade bargaining simulation. The course is delivered through a blended learning approach with teaching materials and online modules provided through the MyUni course page. Students are expected to complete all online modules prior to the face-to-face sessions.
