IPE in flux: IPEG annual workshop

This event will be in Edinburgh, UK

Crisis and uncertainty have become the norm in the global political economy. (Hyper-)inflation, unprecedented debt, persistent poverty and subjugation, climate change, strife, and the abuse of power by world leaders are among the complex challenges we face. At the same time, new opportunities and risks have emerged from technological advances and changing global power politics. There is an urgent need to rethink how institutions, systems, and ideas can be reformulated in ways that cope with these challenges while building resilience and making progress on demands for decolonisation, equality, and justice. 

The theme of this year’s IPEG workshop is therefore ‘IPE in Flux’. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on what it means to face these unknowns, what lessons we might draw from past / ongoing crises, and what role scholarship plays in addressing them.

Closing date for registration is Friday 19 July 2024.
