Islamabad Institute for Political Economy (IIPE) is an ever-first institute within the Pakistan establishing as well as working specifically on Political Economy and its various theories (especially Third Positionism) that enable students to rigorously explore contemporary Pakistani and global issues such as finance, migration and borders, labor and power relations, environmental justice, Indigenous resurgence, race and racism, gender and sexuality, colonialism, food sovereignty, and community activism.
IIPE also seeks to understand how economic incentives shape political institutions and behavior, and how political forces influence economic choices.
For our institute, political economy encompasses a spectrum of work from an applied or theoretical perspective, employing statistical or analytical methods, and with an economic or political focus. The increasingly complex political and economic conditions we face call for a more complete understanding of the interactions between decision-making in these two realms.
Our scheduled determinations include:
- Annual Report on the
working and functioning of IIPE,
- Ongoing series of mini
conferences, visitors, and political economy working papers, and,
- In addition, publishing
books related to IIPE’s defined theoretical framework(s).
