PELG Series

Welcome to the Political Economy Lunch Group (PELG) Speaker Series and Faculty Reading Group, sponsored by the Center for Commerce and Diplomacy. This seminar series showcases leading scholars in economics and political science from across the globe to discuss policy-relevant research on globalization, inequality, populism, national security and other topics related to the center’s mission of advancing peace and prosperity through commerce. Through engagement with prominent invited speakers, the seminar series establishes UC San Diego as a hub of political economy research and promotes interactions of faculty, Ph.D. students, and researchers from several disciplines.

The Speaker Series meets on Tuesdays at 12:30 p.m. throughout the academic year and is open to UC San Diego faculty and students. When there is no invited speaker, PELG offers a Faculty Reading Group that is open to faculty members.
