Welcome to IPE

Welcome to the International Political Economy Section (IPE) of the ISA!

IPE seeks to advance knowledge of how political institutions, processes, and actors influence economic interactions, and conversely, how economic institutions, processes, and actors affect political interactions. IPE scholars examine the role of domestic drivers in shaping global politics as well as the influence of global drivers on domestic politics. Substantive issues this section focuses on include international and regional regimes, private authority structures, welfare policies, social and environmental policies, monetary and exchange rate policies, global integration, international trade, international development and equity, international finance, multinational corporations, NGOs, and corporate social responsibility. We encourage theoretical and methodological diversity, and welcome conceptual as well as empirical contributions.
