Capitalism, Crisis and the Neoliberal State

SOAS Summer School
Campus Full time 19 days July 2019 United Kingdom London

The course is organised into three parts. First, we will unmask how the current neoliberal period can be understood in relation to the long history of capitalism, before exploring analytical models on the connections between the state and the market. Second, we will interrogate key themes for understanding policy practices linked to neoliberalism, including the growth of the financial industry, global trade, and international development. Third, all these debates come together to explore forms of advocacy against neoliberalism, including attention to imperialism, austerity, authoritarianism, and potential future alternatives within and beyond the capitalist system. In addition to classroom-based teaching and debate, the course features additional social activity, including a field trip to the City of London and relevant film screenings. [+]

Programme Description

Financial crises. Trade wars. World poverty. Austerity politics. Right-wing populism. Resistance, revolutions and social change. All these complex issues – which profoundly shape the lives of nations and individuals – are tied in some way to how the global capitalist system is politically organised. This course offers the tools to question who gains and who loses and how to better understand the politics of the world economy. Based on literature within the larger field of political economy, the course examines the crucial structures, processes, and outcomes in the recent struggles over neoliberal capitalism.
