The PPE research group studies questions spanning the disciplines of politics, philosophy, and economics, and is specifically interested in how insights from all three of these disciplines can help illuminate the study of the most pressing problems facing contemporary societies. The research group focuses on both empirical and theoretical questions, and draws on a wide range of intellectual traditions across the social sciences.
