Research Program in Political Economy

About RPPE

Created by the joint initiative of the Politics Department, the Economics Department, and the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, the Research Program in Political Economy (RPPE) supports scholarship at the intersection of economics and political science.

Designed to facilitate greater interaction across departments at Princeton as well as with the broader disciplines, the program sponsors research workshops and colloquia, conferences, short-term visits to Princeton by scholars who work in political economy, and grants to students to aid their research in political economy.
