Submissions are invited for the fifth annual conference on the political economy of international organizations, to be held at Villanova University, Philadelphia, USA, on January 26-28, 2012. The conference brings together economists and political scientists to address political-economy issues related to international organizations such as the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the European Union, and also other international organizations that have received less attention in the academic literature.
