Graduate Students in International Political Economy (GSIPE) Workshop

The Graduate Student International Political Economy Workshop (GSIPE) is a virtual, interdisciplinary, graduate-student-run workshop. We aim to provide a venue for graduate students (including pre-docs and post-docs) to present works-in-progress and solicit feedback from their peers and faculty.

We invite graduate students and faculty from Political Science and Economics with an interest in International Political Economy (broadly defined) to participate, and to sign up for our mailing list. We welcome papers in all stages of progress and job market papers.


Information about special events and opportunties can be found here.
