About PEIF

Politics and Economics of International Finance (PEIF) is a continuing series of annual one-day PEIF conferences that brings together scholars interested in economic and political-economy issues in international financial relations.  Three scholars are asked each to present a body of their research in a unified narrative. The day concludes with a policy panel. The current PEIF series is chaired by Jeffrey Frankel and Jeffry Frieden, and is organized under the auspices of Harvard’s Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government.

Conference: The 2020 and 2021 PEIF conferences were cancelled due to the pandemic. We are hoping to hold the next one on March 12, 2022.
