IPEG Papers in International Political Economy (PIPEline)

IPEG Papers in International Political Economy (PIPEline) is the official working paper series of the International Political Economy Group (IPEG) of the British International Studies Association (BISA). The working paper series is intended to provide a forum for debate and discussion in global political economy, broadly and inclusively understood. We welcome submissions from scholars working across disciplines who self-identify their work as operating within the global political economy tradition.

All of the papers published in the series have been subjected to a mild refereeing process to maintain quality. As with all working paper series, the papers published here do not necessarily appear in their final form. As such, their appearance as a PIPEline paper does not preclude revision for submission to another forum. PIPEline papers are available online to all members of IPEG, BISA and other visitors to our website. While these papers are free to all, we nevertheless require that when drawn upon for the purposes of research and argumentation they are acknowledged in the appropriate manner.

The working paper series was relaunched under the name PIPEline in 2016. As a result, newer papers have a different format and have restarted the numbering system from scratch.

If you are interested in submitting a paper to the Series, please contact the Series Editor Matthew Eagleton-Pierce (me7@soas.ac.uk) or the general convenors.
