International Political Economy

International political economy is a subfield of Political Science. Researchers in this field see a policy output as a result of interactions among given political institutions, relevant actors, and the actors' (political economic) interests. These interactions occur domestically, inter-governmentally, and transnationally. The work mentioned here can be an analysis of any of these parts: some describe the actors' interests or their interactions per se, and others analyze the extent to which these factors predict policy outputs.
