What is critical IPE?

Ian Bruff, Daniela Tepe

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is no abstract, but this is a representative paragraph (from the introduction):

'Therefore, ‘critical IPE’ cannot conform to labels such as heterodox, anti-positivist or ‘British’, for such reductionist terms do not capture it accurately. Moreover, it also provides the tools for a critical analysis of capitalism. This goes well beyond capitalism as merely an economic system of production, exchange and redistribution, for we can also refer to: its exploitative and expansionist dynamics; its mechanisms and modes of legitimating (e.g. the cultural/aesthetic); its gendered nature; and its hegemonic and paradigmatic imaginaries that are frequently held as the truth. In turn, this sets the stage for reflection on how the world could be changed in the name of more progressive, emancipatory values.'
