Theories of International Political Economy
Scientific Cultures and American Hegemony
Born at the beginning of the 1970s in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, international political economy (IPE) has helped us to understand the transformations of the international scene by emphasising their economic dimensions. This approach addresses the interactions between States and the markets, as well as their effects on global politics.
Alongside security concerns, IPE has now become one of the most important disciplines in the broader field of international relations, providing the latter with some of its most innovative concepts: globalisation, complex interdependence, hegemonic stability, structural power, world governance, etc. It has also given birth to various theories, the major ones of which have been defended by two largely incompatible schools of thought: the orthodox school, based in the United States, and the heterodox school, predominant in the United Kingdom and very present in Canada and throughout the world.
As a critical overview designed for French-speaking internationalists, this book presents the main actors, debates and paradigms that structure the discipline.
