Research overview

My research is situated within the field of International Political Economy. In particular, I focus on the relationship between state and economy and the ways in which the state’s role in a capitalist society has been conceptualised by liberal, neoliberal and critical theories. My research also engages with the political economy of post-industrial capitalism. I examine how deindustrialisation has fundamentally altered the landscape of the global economy and impacted states’ governing strategies. Furthermore, my work looks at the post-1980s transformation of the French state and its evolving relationship with European supranational regulations. Finally, my interests include Karl Marx's Critique of Political Economy and value theory.
