About the PIPE Collaborative

The Political Institutions and Political Economy (PIPE) Collaborative is a university-wide research endeavor jointly sponsored by the Price School’s Bedrosian Center and the Office of the Provost. The PIPE Collaborative will include faculty and graduate students with common interests in various aspects of political institutions and political economy.

The PIPE Collaborative is Directed by
Jeffery A. Jenkins

Provost Professor of Public Policy, Political Science, and Law
Maria B. Crutcher Professor of Citizenship and Democratic Values
Director, PIPE Collaborative

“A PIPE conference or event is not a gathering of the usual ‘old boys,’ but rather an assembly of diverse minds coming together to address some of the more important issues of the day.”

KRISTIN KANTHAK, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, UNIVERSITY OF PITTSBURGH

2021-2022 PIPE Fellows

“I find that the PIPE fills an important gap for the West Coast. While the geographic proximity of East Coast schools allows for a variety of opportunities for scholarly exchange, the same is not true here. The PIPE [Collaborative]’s reputation and funding have helped to bridge this gap by attracting top scholars from across the country to participate in such exchanges.”

FRANCISCO GARFIAS, ASSISTANT PROFESSOR, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SAN DIEGO

Symposia & Conferences

“I participated in the PIPE conference last year (March 2019) and it was such a unique experience since the PIPE brings scholars from different subfields within Political Science as well as from Economics and Business. As a scholar of American Politics, I usually have a limited experience in interacting with scholars who study comparative politics and other areas since a typical academic conference is often organized along the narrowly defined subfields. [The] PIPE conference at USC was different.”
