International Political Economy (IPE) or, Global Political Economy, is a vibrant and rapidly growing field of study. It has always been concerned with the connections between politics and economics, the national and the global, under conditions of globalisation.
More recently, IPE has become an especially productive field for critical social science research into pressing global issues, such as: world poverty, inequality, gender relations, economic crises, and the environment.
