Abstract and Keywords

In the aftermath of the global financial crisis (GFC), there has been much soul-searching in economics and those areas of the policy sciences that concern themselves with the study of finance and the economy. The purpose of this chapter is to look at international political economy (IPE) and (global) public policy (GPP) as areas of inquiry undergoing processes of transition in the wake of the GFC and ask how they might demonstrate greater policy influence. We suggest that there are important lessons that IPE can learn from GPP, in order to ensure its relevance in global policy debates. We highlight the relevance of three public policy tools that may benefit IPE: policy complexity; behavioural approaches; and strategic foresight.

Keywords: global financial crisis (GFC), global policy, international political economy, strategic foresight, transnationalism
