Cornelia Navari, of the University of Buckingham, gives an expert talk on Susan Strange, one of the world's leading scholars in international relations and the major European figure in international political economy (IPE). Born in 1923, Strange graduated with a First in Economics from the LSE during the Second World War, began a career in journalism, first at The Economist and then for The Observer. A research fellow at the Royal Institute of International Affairs at Chatham House from 1965, she directed its acclaimed transnational relations project. In 1978 she was appointed Montague Burton Professor of International Relations at the LSE, and with a few other virtually invented IPE as the study of the impact of power politics on market outcomes. She was robustly critical of what she argued were selfishly irresponsible US policies in their impact on the health of the world economy. A twice-married mother of six children, she was impatient with feminist complaints about the unfairness of life.
