Mission Statement

The Amsterdam Research Centre for International Political Economy aims to promote critical work in the study of the global political economy. The members of ARCIPE are inspired by such great political economists as Karl Marx, Thorstein Veblen, Karl Polanyi, Susan Strange and Robert Cox.

Though co-ordinated from Amsterdam, ARCIPE takes the shape of a transnational network branching out to other universities within the Netherlands and outside. ARCIPE thus serves the dual purpose of providing a platform for the members to continue their joint work, as well as to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas with others sharing our conviction that the current condition of the global political economy challenges us to move beyond the boundaries of the conventional.
