More Information
Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

With contributions from an international range of experts, this cutting-edge Research Agenda collates the most important and emerging research in the field to map out the new directions and promising paths ahead for the international political economy (IPE).

Probing the most promising lines of research on the crucial inter-connections of globalization and socioeconomic inequality, the book opens with an investigation into our understanding of how externally generated financial, health, and migration crises affect political economic systems worldwide. Chapters explore fundamental changes in the nature of IPE, including those driven by technology, power transitions, the geography of trade, new foreign aid channels, and economic espionage. Rethinking the future research agenda for IPE, the book concludes by challenging the underlying ideas and perspectives that shape the thinking and scholarship of the field.

Countering the deep-rooted western, white-male orientation of traditional IPE research with the alternative perspectives of decolonial and feminist ecological thinkers, this innovative Research Agenda will prove invaluable to students, scholars and policymakers concerned with the future of the international political economy.

Critical Acclaim
‘How can international political economy scholarship contribute to solving the existential challenges confronting humanity? This critically important question is the focus of the contributions in this ambitious volume. Pursuing the proposed research agenda will do much to revitalize and redirect IPE research to provide pertinent answers.’
– Bernard Hoekman, European University Institute, Italy

‘The timing of this book could not be better. There has been much debate recently about “gaps” in the agenda of international political economy. Deese and his colleagues deliver an excellent survey of key emerging areas of research that can be expected to help shape IPE scholarship in coming years.’
– Benjamin J. Cohen, University of California, Santa Barbara, US
