I finished the course Political Economy of Institutions and Development offered by Universiteit Leiden. The certificate was issued on 11 February 2018.
ABOUT THE COURSE
(from the Coursera website – details accessible if with Coursera account)
In today’s world, politics and economics are interconnected, but what is the nature of this connectivity? What are the power relationships that shape the world economy today and create new challenges for international institutions facing globalization? What makes some countries wealthier than others? Do we face cultural diversity or fragmentation? Does the type of governance effect economic development and social change or is it the other way around? How do we measure it and how trustworthy is the data? These issues and many more will be examined in this course along with a wide library of sources and a biting criticism.
