Panel i leonard seabrooke

Leonard Seabrooke is a Copenhagen Business School Professor in International Political Economy and Economic Sociology in the Department of Business and Politics. Seabrooke's research primarily concerns the role of professionals and experts in treating social and economic problems, the politics of access to credit, tax, and property within economies, and the role of 'Global Wealth Chains' in the international political economy. He has also worked on the social sources of how states generate international financial capacity, how 'everyday politics' has influence in the world economy, how international organizations create policy scripts, and the connection between welfare systems, housing, fertility, and international finance. Seabrooke has published articles in highly ranked international peer review journals in the fields of International Political Economy and Economic and Organizational Sociology, including American Sociological Review, Governance, International Studies Quarterly, Journal of European Public Policy, Organization, Public Administration, Review of International Political Economy, and many others. Seabrooke was also the Director of Studies of the Warwick Commission on International Financial Reform, which brought together economists, political scientists, and lawyers from both the scholarly and policy worlds to discuss financial reform and re-regulation.


Seabrooke was Principal Investigator of the 'Professions in International Political Economies' (PIPES) project (2011-2014) funded by the European Research Council and led a research team based at the Copenhagen Business School. He was a Work Package Leader of the 'Global Reordering: Evolution though European Networks' (GR:EEN) large-scale integrating project (2011-2015), funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) for research. Since 2015 he has been Chief Scientist on an EC Horizon 2020 project titled ENLIGHTEN ('European Legitimacy in Governing Through Hard Times'), which deals with how political and expert networks operate in 'fast-burning' and 'slow-burning' crises within Europe. He is also leading a new project tracing the careers, networks, and ideas of American economists for the Institute for New Economic Thinking.
