Until the early twenty-first century, there was a virtual absence of health as a subject of inquiry in the field of international political economy (IPE). However, in recent years health has become one of the key emerging issues in the study of contemporary IPE. In this chapter, we set out the core themes that define this growing field of scholarship. We draw upon the existing literature, from the IPE and health fields, to illustrate these themes including our own research on the IPE of tobacco control. We conclude by assessing the current state of IPE and health scholarship and potential future directions for strengthening research.
