economy and the political forces that surround it. It will seek to set in historical context the rise of the global
political economy and the institutional framework around which it operates today. On completion of this
module students will be more economically and politically aware, and be able to explain the nature of global
relations and the implications these might have on the performance of the global economy, and hence on
the external environment of business.

Assessment Task
Assessment of Scrapbook
A scrapbook is a type of journal in which you collect “scraps” of information and from these scraps
you tell a story. In effect, you create a type of book – hence its name “scrapbook”. In bygone days,
before computers and on-line means of storing data (the dark ages!) you would use a scrapbook to
collect newspaper clips, pictures and other forms of media. These scrapbooks could be issue based
or often, people kept scrapbooks to commemorate events or keep memorabilia of pop stars that
they followed or football teams they supported. With on-line resources and the nature of data
storage today, the scrapbook is rapidly being consigned to history and the nostalgia for a past
generation. There is however something in the scrapbook, the way it is presented and the way it
can be used that electronic media will never be able to capture. It will mimic I am sure, but the
tangible nature of the paper and the content within is more real and alive.
You are required to create a scrapbook for this module which will focus on a specific issue in the
realm of what we would call International Political Economy (IPE). You are to collect information
from a wide variety of sources, and in a wide variety of formats. A list of potential sources and
formats are given below.
The scrapbook has no word limit as such, given the nature of its content, or expected or required
format for presentation. That is a creative task left to you. The scrapbook should be seen as a
creative endeavour and your presentation of the work will be rewarded when marked. As such the
creative thought that has gone into presenting the information is as important as the content itself.
The scrapbook will constitute 25% of the total mark for this module while the presentation, that
should relate to the same scrapbook topic and the material therein, will be of 25% of the total
Information Sources and Information Formats
Sources: Newspapers, magazines, journals, books, blogs, YouTube, Wikis, websites, TV
programmes, interviews/public speaking.
Formats: Written words, transcription from audio sources, blog entries, Twitter feeds, pictures.
What should I consider? Consider the following when selecting your scrapbook topic:
Is the issue contemporary and on-going? By this I mean in the news. Remember you want it to be
topical to get information and data.
Does the issue have a clear focus? In other words, you cannot say your topic is Economic Blockade.
However, you could say your topic is The Economic Blockade of Qatar. Or better still, How is Qatari
Business Managing to Operate with Economic Blockade? Notice the focus. This will make it easier
to both research and evaluate.
Select an issue that interests you, or is relevant to you in some way, or is in a sector you would
perhaps like to work in future.
Scrapbook and Presentation: The scrapbook and presentation are both summative. Both
scrapbook and presentation are group work. Each member of the group should make at least 8
Pg. 6 Version 1
significant contributions to the scrapbook. The same group has to make a 15 to 20 minutes
presentation on the same topic as that of scrapbook. Presentation material and time must be
divided equally amongst the group members and each member has to be present. There will be a
five minute question and answer session at the end of the group presentation.
List of Contributions: At the time of submission of scrapbook you will also submit a list of your
contributions in the prescribed format. That contribution list is formative in nature and would be
used to judge your contribution to the scrapbook. It is required to review and evaluate your
content. What have you learnt from what you have collected? How does what you have learnt,
and what you have collected, direct you to what you need to consider or focus upon to develop
your scrapbook content? There is no need to upload the List of Contributions on to Turnitin.
Guidelines to Students:
ï‚· Keep close liaison with your course instructor during the whole process. Showing them your
scrapbook and presentation and taking feedback from them will help you to improve your work.
ï‚· Try to finish the scrapbook early so that you have enough time to make the presentation.
ï‚· Avoid use of any unfair means.
Words of advice for making the scrapbook:
Whenever you contribute to the scrapbook, write your name, student ID and the date.
Each page should also mention the source of the contribution and the date of its publication.
Try to collect information that is as recent as possible.
Present the information in a creative way, such that the information can be navigated and
mapped effectively. It must include a content sheet.

1. Plagiarism can be defined as using without acknowledgement another person’s words or ideas and
submitting them for assessment as though it were one’s own work, for instance by copying,
translating from one language to another or unacknowledged paraphrasing. Further examples of
plagiarism are given below:
Use of any quotation(s) from the published or unpublished work of other persons, whether
published in textbooks, articles, the Web, or in any other format, which quotations have not been
clearly identified as such by being placed in quotation marks and acknowledged.
Use of another person’s words or ideas that have been slightly changed or paraphrased to make it
look different from the original.
Summarising another person’s ideas, judgments, diagrams, figures, or computer programmes
without reference to that person in the text and the source in a bibliography or reference list.
Use of services of essay banks and/or any other agencies.
Use of unacknowledged material downloaded from the Internet.
Re-use of one’s own material except as authorised by the department.
2. Collusion can be defined as when work that has been undertaken by or with others is submitted and
passed off as solely as the work of one person. This also applies where the work of one candidate is
submitted in the name of another. Where this is done with the knowledge of the originator both
parties can be considered to be at fault.
3. Fabrication of data is making false claims to have carried out experiments, observations, interviews
or other forms of data collection and analysis, or acting dishonestly in any other way.
Plagiarism Detection Software (PDS)
As part of its commitment to quality and the maintenance of academic standards, the University reserves
the right to use Plagiarism Detection Software (PDS), including Turnitin. Such software makes no judgment
as to whether a piece of work has been plagiarised; it simply highlights sections of text that have been found
in other sources.
The use of plagiarism detection software fulfills two functions. The first is to enhance student learning (i.e. as
a developmental tool); the second is to guard against and identify unfair practice in assessment.
Further information and guidance can be found in the University’s policy on the Use of Plagiarism Detection
