Biography
Clint Peinhardt specializes in International Relations, particularly International Political Economy and International Organizations. In addition to teaching classes on those subjects at UTD’s School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences, his research investigates the intersection of international politics, economics, and law. Recent papers analyze the international “rules” governing foreign investment via investment treaties, as well as financial liberalization, such as the opening of stock markets to foreign investors and the process of recruiting multinational corporations to new sites of production. Recent research examines the role of political risk insurance in resolving investor-state disputes.
