Peine’s research focuses on global food systems, agribusiness, and Brazil-China relations.

As professor and director of the International Political Economy (IPE) program at Puget Sound, Emelie Peine combines tools from sociology, politics, geography, economics, and other social sciences to shed some light on how governments, markets, and societies interact to create the world we live in. Peine researches the role of multinational corporations in the global food regime. We recently sat down with her to learn about international trade, experiential learning, and why we should all be studying food systems.
