Lecturer in International Political Economy

Research Overview

The main focus of my research is the global political economy of capitalism and its governance. It examines the limits and challenges that capitalist development poses for states' governign stategies and their social implications. In particular, I am interested in how post-industrial transformations, economic stagnation and automation alter the social landscape states arte called to manage. On a theoretical level, my rsearch explores the relationship between state, economy and power by engaging with liberal, neoliberal and Marxist conceptions of capitalism. Finally, I am also researching the political economy of French capitalism and the transformations of state policy since the 1980s.
