The Network for a New Political Economy aims to rethink political economy and develop an alternative intellectual paradigm to neoliberalism. The roots of the new paradigm reside in ongoing research in social science departments, such as economics, political science, sociology, and history, as well as in professional schools. such as business, law, and public policy. The network fosters an intellectual conversation among faculty and students across these units at UC Berkeley, and encourages them to frame their insights for public engagement and policy relevance. It facilitates collective deliberation at UC Berkeley and with partners at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and elsewhere, on how political economy should be studied and taught, as well as how new perspectives can be applied to public debates and pressing policy problems.

Grants to this Grantee
for the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity
A grant to the University of California at Berkeley will support the ongoing work of the Center for Long-Term Cybersecurity, the home of this research and engagement at the university. The center focuses on both the “cyber” and “security” components of cybersecurity, grounding efforts in a robust, flexible, and evolving understanding of the “possibility” space of cybersecurity. Research will focus on possible security scenarios and explore the technical, political, and economic intersection of these potential futures. The aim of this approach is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration within the center as well as to add diversity to the cybersecurity conversation. The center brings together academics from the School of Information, the School of Law, Computer Science, the Goldman School of Public Policy, and the College of Engineering, among others. It also engages external stakeholders in all facets of this work, including in outreach efforts. (Strategy: Talent Pipeline)
