Spotlight on our International Political Economy researchers:
Dr James Morrison and Dr Ellen Holtmaat
Dr James Ashley Morrison and Dr Ellen Holtmaat discuss their most recent research into historical International Political Economy, and into private sustainability standards, and who benefits from their research.
They also consider International Political Economy in relation to the global COVID-19 pandemic, and the new areas of discussion it opens up.

Research cluster convenors:
Professor Jeffrey Chwieroth and Dr Victoria Paniagua
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.
