PPOL 676 - International Financial Instit
This course will provide an overview of the international financial institutions (the World Bank, regional development banks, and the International Monetary Fund) from a policymaker's perspective.  Students will gain a better understanding of the diversity of roles the international financial institutions (IFIs) play in the global economy, ranging from bailouts in Europe to conditional cash transfer programs in Honduras to hotel construction in Ghana.  The course will explore the history of the IFIs, their governance structures, and their instruments of engagement as a basis for understanding their approaches to today's international policy issues.  Students will be encouraged to examine the IFIs from a policymaker's perspective through policy-oriented writing assignments and simulations of IFI-related policymaking exercises.
