In terms of PhD-studies, Global Political Economy is part of World Politics in the Doctoral Programme in Political, Societal and Regional Change. The majority of active World Politics PhD-students focus on economic theories and issues of European and world political economy, including political economy approaches to peace and security. We have a lively research seminar that meets biweekly and involves many visiting speakers. If you are interested to join our research community, please contact Professors Heikki Patomäki or Teivo Teivainen.
