The co-chairs of the RC51 (International Political Economy) organized with the committee's members over 25 closed panels for the forthcoming 24th World Congress of Political Science, which will take place in Istanbul between 23 and 28 July 2016. We are now in the process of reviewing additional closed panels and, by the end of January, IPSA's officials will release the full list of accepted panels. For the moment, we would like to thank all those who submitted panels and abstracts for their work and interest in the RC!
