The International Political Economy Research Network brings together Ottawa-based scholars, students and practitioners interested in understanding the political, social and cultural dynamics of the global economy.
Our members are drawn from a multitude of different disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds and address very different kinds of problems in their research. Some focus on very concrete problems and solutions, seeking to make sense of past and present economic problems such as the recent financial crisis, poverty or economic refugees. Others ask much broader, more philosophical questions about how what it means to be an economic actor, or how we can understand the economy in symbolic terms.
The IPE Network is designed to link those in Ottawa with an interest in political economic issues through a variety of events.
