IPC covers three research domains: international finance, trade and development; international security; and human rights.
Our vision is to be a productive, visible hub for international policy research at the University of Michigan and a widely-known center for specific lines of research related to our core faculty strengths.
To this end, our team manages a series of IPC Research Workshops designed to foster academic exchange and collaboration among subject matter experts and scholars of international policy. We offer the IPC Research Scholar Award program to support doctoral candidates’ international fieldwork, and host IPC Visiting Scholars to supplement our in-house expertise and expand our network.
We also maintain active research seminar series on international economic development and international security.
