The RIPE Series in Global Political Economy publishes innovative and cutting edge scholarship that pushes forward our understanding of how processes associated with globalisation are constituted, challenged and contested. The series is informed by three intellectual ambitions that run across political economy, geography, and sociology: a desire to understand how global transformations are situated in everyday spaces and experiences; a curiosity with how power and authority are exercised in governance across a range of scales; and a need to question the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of accounts of change, embracing a commitment to methodological and epistemological pluralism. In pursuing these ambitions, the series provides for scholarship that is conceptually challenging, empirically rigorous, and normatively reflective.
