Angelos Angelou is a PhD candidate in the European Institute. His work focuses on when international bureaucracies diverge from their principals' preferences during financial crises. Drawing from the European Commission's debt-management policies between 2009-2012, he argues that international bureaucracies tend to choose crisis-management policies that are seen as compatible with their institutional culture, independently of the principals’ preferences. In that sense, internal institutional features can prove to be more influential than anticipated by the standard state-centric narrative.
During his time at the LSE he has acted as the co-convenor of the Europe@LSE seminar series, while he was also a member of the LSE's Research Degree Sub-committee.
Prior to the PhD, Angelos worked for the Wilfred Martens Centre for European Studies, conducting research on trade policy, and for the European External Action Service where he was a trainee in the Department of Global and Multilateral affairs.
He holds an MA degree in European Studies and International Economics from the Johns Hopkins University- SAIS. During his postgraduate studies he worked as a research assistant for Professor David P. Calleo and was the recipient of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Scholarship for European Studies. Angelos received his B.A degree (honours) from the University of Piraeus on International and European Studies
