International Political Economy research group focuses on the examination of contemporary socioeconomic and political dynamics of crisis and limitations of European and global order. The research group is characterised by its analytical and methodological pluralism, which encompasses both qualitative and quantitative methods, and with strong emphasis placed on the dialogue between mainstream and critical traditions in the field of IPE.
Our researcher and scholarship explores:
- The role of finance (or ‘financialisation’) in today’s political economy
- The origin, functions and shortcomings of European Monetary and Economic Union
- How globalisation influences statecraft and public policy choices
- How power is configured at a global scale and how it materialises as flows of people (migration), money, goods and services.
