The Security and Political Economy (SPEC) Lab, based in the University of Southern California, conducts interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research on issues at the intersection of climate change, security, and economic development. Faculty and doctoral students collaborate with undergraduate students as they develop data science and other research skills and apply them directly to the policy challenges facing national governments and international institutions.


The SPEC Lab team has recently posted the latest version of the Dyadic IPE Data Resource to the Harvard Database. Take a look by clicking the button below!
