For all queries, please contact the cluster convenors above.


 

This cluster explores international political economy: the relationship between states and markets in a global context.

Research and teaching in this cluster works at multiple levels of analysis and draws on an array of theoretic and methodological approaches from several disciplines. Both historical and contemporary questions are addressed across a range of issues including: trade, migration, global environmental politics, international economic organisations, economic diplomacy, international finance, foreign investment, exchange rates, and monetary relations.

The group has regional expertise in Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Over the past few years, the IPE group has run a speaker series in collaboration with colleagues in Government and at Oxford University. IPE faculty plan to strengthen and further institutionalise this seminar series in the coming years.

On their way, they stopped by the house of John Maynard Keynes at 46 Gordon Square and took some group photos:
