Our partners

SPERI’s aim is to lead the debate about a new political economy. But we have never tried to do this by ourselves.  That is why engaging with partner organisations has always been central to our research. We seek to bring together leading international researchers, policy-makers, journalists and opinion formers to discuss new ideas and promote new thinking on key contemporary questions of political economy.

Our partners help to develop SPERI’s research agenda, publications and events. Through dialogue and engagement with us they shape our ideas and thinking, and we hope we shape theirs too.
