More Information

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.

The Murphy Institute

Established in memory of Charles H. Murphy, Sr. (1870-1954), and inspired by the vision of Charles H. Murphy, Jr. (1920-2002), The Murphy Institute exists to help Tulane faculty and students understand economic, moral, and political problems we all face and think about. More important, it exists to help us understand how these problems have come to be so closely interconnected.
