Judith L. Goldstein is the chair for the department of political science, the Janet M. Peck Professor of International Communication, and the Kaye University Fellow in Undergraduate Education. Goldstein’s research interests include international political economy and trade politics. Her current research examines the political requisites for trade liberalization, focusing both on tariff bargaining and public preferences. She is also engaged in the analysis of a large survey panel, which investigates how periods of economic difficulty influence public opinion.

Goldstein has authored or edited six books including Ideas, Interests and American Trade Policy and more recently, The Evolution of the Trade Regime: Politics, Law and Economics of the GATT and the WTO. Her articles have appeared in numerous journals. She holds a BA from the University of California Berkeley, a masters degree from Columbia University, and a PhD from UCLA.
