Giorgos Gouzoulis
Giorgos is a political economist, formerly working as a Research Fellow at IIPP, now a Research Associate. He holds a PhD in International Political Economy from King’s College London and his scholarly interests lie in the areas of Global Political Economy, International Development, Comparative Politics, Labour Relations, and Quantitative Methods.

The common thread to Giorgos’ research is its interdisciplinary approach to theorising and empirically investigating the multidirectional feedback between inequality, political power, and public policy. His current research explores the causes and consequences of income inequality in emerging markets, and scrutinises the political and economic drivers of crises. At IIPP, Giorgos is working on theorising and mapping modern economics rents with Professor Mariana Mazzucato and Dr Josh Ryan-Collins.

He has co-authored and is currently co-authoring papers on relevant topics with colleagues from the University of Cambridge, King’s College London, City University of London, Goldsmiths, Birkbeck, and the University of Greenwich. More details on his research can be found in his personal website and ResearchGate profile.
