RIPE Series in Global Political Economy


About the Series

For almost two decades now, the RIPE Series in Global Political Economy published by Routledge has been an essential forum for cutting-edge scholarship in International Political Economy, which we understand to be a broadly defined area of research that may cut across other disciplines. The series brings together new and established scholars working in critical, cultural and constructivist political economy. Books in the RIPE Series typically combine an innovative contribution to theoretical debates with rigorous empirical analysis.

The RIPE Series seeks to cultivate:

  • Field-defining theoretical advances in International Political Economy.
  • Novel treatments of key issue areas, such as global finance, trade, and production, both historical and contemporary.
  • Analyses that explore the political economic dimensions of relatively neglected topics, such as the environment, gender, race, and colonialism from both Western and non-Western perspectives.
  • Accessible work that will inspire advanced undergraduates and graduate students in International Political Economy.
