From 2008-2014, PAIS, in conjunction with the Review of International Political Economy (RIPE) hosted an annual Warwick/RIPE debate in International Political Economy (IPE). The debates have been the department's flagship IPE event and bring together internationally renowned scholars to discuss issues at the cutting edge of IPE in front of, and with, large audiences. From 2015 PAIS has hosted the Annual Warwick Debate on the Future of IPE.
The 2017 Debate considered the topic of economic accounting, specifically speakers discussed the politics of current, widespread practices of measuring and quantifying what matters in the world, but from differing IPE perspectives: feminist, environmental and historical. Our speakers were: Professor Peter Newell (University of Sussex), Professor Daniel Mügge (University of Amsterdam) and Professor Shirin Rai (University of Warwick). The debate took place on the 9th March at 16:30 in MS.05 (Zeeman Building).
