About the Speaker
Matthias Matthijs focuses his research on the politics of economic crises, the role of economic ideas in economic policymaking, the politics of inequality, the limits of regional integration, and the erosion of democratic legitimacy in the advanced industrial world. He is the recipient of a 2015 Johns Hopkins Catalyst Award in recognition of his work as a promising early-career investigator.
He is the co-editor (with Mark Blyth) of the book The Future of the Euro& (Oxford University Press 2015), and the author of Ideas and Economic Crises in Britain from Attlee to Blair, (Routledge, 2011). The latter is based on his PhD dissertation, which received the Samuel H. Beer Prize for Best Dissertation in British Politics by a North American scholar, awarded by the British Politics Group of the American Political Science Association in 2010.
