It was during my time as a resource navigator that I became passionate about helping refugees. I had always known that I wanted to “do good,” but I felt through helping recent immigrants and refugees that I had found my calling. I grew frustrated at the bureaucratic challenges my patients faced, and I knew a MIPA degree was right for me.

The purpose of this seminar is to explore the public policy and politics of international finance.  We will focus, in particular, on the ways in which the globalization of finance over the last four decades has influenced – and been influenced by – politics, institutions, and policymaking processes at both the domestic and international levels.  Topics include: the effects of international financial integration on national policymaking; the International Monetary Fund and institutions of global financial governance; financial crises; exchange rates; China’s integration into the global economy; European monetary integration and the Eurozone crisis; populist nationalism & the global economy; and the role of the Federal Reserve and other major central banks in global financial governance.

La Follette School Professor Mark Copelovitch recently received a Daniel Louis and Genevieve Rustvold Goldy Faculty Fellow award to support his research activities.
