Research


In general terms, I am interested in issues of governance in a globalising world. This area is studied in international political economy, a sub-discipline of international relations. My own approach can be characterized as transnational historical materialism. Concretely, I have worked in recent years on asylum and migration issues in a European context, on the political economy of (un)employment and labour market restructuring in Europe, and on issues of globalisation, corporate governance and business taxation. In the coming years I intend to focus my work on the impact of the economic crisis on the global order.
