Workshop on International and Comparative Political Economy

CCCP Workshop 2020

The Cologne Center for Comparative Politics (CCCP) and the Excellence Cluster ECONtribute (ECONtribute: Markets & Public Policy EXC 2126) are jointly hosting an international workshop on “International and Comparative Political Economy”. This two-day event brings together early career researchers and senior scholars using diverse methodological approaches to study key questions in this research area. The first day will showcase the work of researchers studying distributive politics, the political representation of working-class women, and gendered policymaking in authoritarian regimes. The second day will highlight new research on the politics of investment and regulation in the digital economy, the trade-migration nexus, and the impact of globalization on social policy preferences in middle-income countries. Each panel will also feature a keynote lecture by an invited scholar who is an expert in their field. As keynote speakers for the workshop, we are delighted to host Charlotte Cavaille (University of Michigan), Frances Rosenbluth (Yale University), Anke Hassel (Hertie School of Governance) and Stefanie Walter (University of Zurich).
