The Ph.D. Program in Political Economy and Government (PEG) combines rigorous training in economics, formal theory, and methods with a substantive focus on the interaction between economic and political institutions and processes. Students and faculty members in the PEG program share an intellectual interest in the impact of politics on economic processes and outcomes, and the reciprocal influence of economic conditions on political life. It covers such diverse areas as international economic relations, political development, political and economic institutions, institutional transition and reform, economic performance, environmental resource policies, and social policy.
