The international conference was one of the key initiatives undertaken by experts in international political economy, under the aegis of a cooperative scientific program between the Niehaus Center for Globalization and Government, at Princeton University, on one hand , and on the other the University of São Paulo, represented by the Institute of International Relations - IRI, the Center for Public Policy Research – NUPPs, and the Institute of Advanced Studies - IEA. Participants were scholars from Brazil, the US and Europe, whose contribution to an essentially trans-disciplinary area such as international political economy is widely acknowledged, including political scientists, international relations experts and economists. The conference focused on the transformative processes engendered by globalization and its impact in the emerging countries. The Conference provided a thorough discussion about alternative frameworks to anchor a theoretically informed empirical research on the emerging market countries in the post-2008 scenario.
