Research Interests

Dr. Kucik’s research explores issues in international political economy. He focuses primarily on the legal architecture of the global trade regime. His recent work seeks to explain variation in the design of preferential trade agreements as well as the distributional consequences of agreement membership.

Beyond trade institutions, Dr. Kucik is also interested in the politics of global economic governance, the determinants of foreign investment flows and the intersection conflict and the market.

His work has appeared in International Organization, International Studies Quarterly, and Economics & Politics. More information about his research is available here.
