CIGI Research Fellow David Kempthorne offers insights into the strengthening of the Financial Stability Board (FSB) following the global financial crisis, to the Waterloo Political Economy Group (WatPEG).
About WatPEG: WatPEG is designed to bring together faculty and graduate students in the Waterloo region interested in the study of political economy. The group gathers for regular informal meetings throughout the year to hear guest talks and presentations and to exchange research findings and ideas.
The meetings provide an opportunity to hear latest research and to discuss political economy issues with graduate students and faculty from the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Balsillie School of International Affairs. Members embrace a variety of approaches to political economy and they focus on many different kinds of international, comparative and domestic political economy topics.
If you are a graduate student or faculty member interested in finding out more about WatPEG or joining our email list, please email Professor Eric Helleiner at [email protected].
