and municipal levels; practices of public debt and political risk evaluation
on bond markets and in financial market institutions (banks; rating agencies,
etc.); transnational governance efforts for standardizing, monitoring,
and "policing" public finances; and the particular role of agencies like independent
central banks and debt management offices in defining how
contemporary states manage their debt.

which explores the relationship between the modern economy and its
social and political foundations. The graduate school features a unique
curriculum of core courses, research methods, electives, and summer
school sessions. Doctoral researchers take part in the intellectual life of
