The International Political Economy Network (IPEN) invites you to a lunchtime seminar with Thomas Chiasson-LeBel.   Thomas Chiasson-LeBel is a SSHRC postdoctoral fellow affiliated with the department of Latin American and Latino Studies of the University of California Santa Cruz. His dissertation (2016 – Political Science, York University) discusses the importance of the class struggle in setting the role the extractive sector plays in the development models of Venezuela and Ecuador. His current research compares strategies of domestic conglomerates in Ecuador and Bolivia to face left-wing governments.   The IPEN is hosted by the Centre for International Policy Studies at the University of Ottawa. Lunchtime seminars feature IPE scholars sharing research-in- progress in a collegial setting.
