Students deal with the nature of economic objectives of agents, social organisation, institutions of power, emergence of conflicts and aims at cooperation. They are expected to master the principles of modern non-conventional economic thinking and be able to apply it in political decision-making at the level of supra-national institutions, states, regional governments, corporations, firms, political parties and groups of citizens.
