Jana Grittersova is associate professor of political science and cooperating faculty in the Department of Economics at the University of California, Riverside. She has developed and maintained an active research program centered around the field of political economy in general and the political economy of international finance in particular. Her research has focused on three inter-related research agendas: 1) the political economy of international monetary relations; 2) varieties of finance capitalism; and 3) sovereign borrowing and debt. Her published and ongoing research focuses primarily on the sources of government reputation in international markets, international banking, the effects of interest groups on the credibility of international monetary and financial commitments, the role of non-market coordination in financial-system development, and political economy of reform. Her book manuscript explores how countries with new histories and weak institutions establish reputation and creditworthiness in international financial markets.
