Expert Statement

I am a political economist with an interest in understanding state capitalism in its different manifestations, with a specific focus on state-controlled investment funds known conventionally as sovereign wealth funds. I am the principal investigator of the SWFsEUROPE project funded by the European Research Council. This project is focused on explaining how sovereign wealth funds are made legitimate as state actors in global and European financial markets, and how these funds are being used to legitimize and facilitate state intervention in economic development in countries across the world.
