University of Washington Political Economy Forum

The Political Economy Forum at the University of Washington brings together diverse scholars and citizens interested in development, innovation and public policy.

The Forum is dedicated to increasing interdisciplinary knowledge and collaboration between researchers working at the intersection(s) of political science, economics and public policy (broadly conceived). The Forum provides an opportunity for folks with common interests to interact across disciplinary boundaries. What we share in common are theoretical, methodological and policy interests that speak to important social, economic and political issues.

While the primary goal of the Forum is to bridge disciplinary divides and foster collaborative approaches to research, we are dedicated to the tenets of evidence based policy: informing collective decisions with facts, logic and evidence and undertaking cost benefit analysis.
