Political Economy Summer Institute: Two Public Events | GMU

This weekend, the Political Economy Project is holding its second annual Political Economy Summer Institute (PESI) at George Mason University. The summer institute brings together some two dozen participants (both graduate students/researchers and instructors) for four intense days of instruction and engagement. 

Around the summer institute, we are holding two public events. One is a keynote lecture on Oilcraft by Robert Vitalis, and the other is a panel on the Political Econnomy of the Arab Uprisings.

For further information on either the Political Economy Project or the Summer Institute, visit www.PoliticalEconomyProject.org.
