Virtual IPES

Virtual IPES facilitates online workshops that allow in-depth discussions of working papers in IPE. In each workshop, author(s) and several tailored discussants from the community of IPE scholars spend 60-75 minutes on a single paper. We thank members of the IPES community for serving in discussant roles. Workshops are recorded and archived here, available for public viewing. Please also contact us if you would prefer to participate in real-time; all are welcome.

Virtual IPES issues a call for papers in July and again in January. We particularly encourage submissions from graduate students and early-career scholars. Submissions are full papers. We aim to schedule four workshops per semester.

Virtual IPES recognizes Will H. Moore whose own endeavors inspired this workshop. We strive to emulate his commitment to inclusiveness, community, and high quality research. Our thanks to Cristina Bodea and Raymond Hicks for founding Virtual IPES, and to James Morrison and Rachel Wellhausen for previously serving on the Virtual IPES Committee.
