Ms Katerina Glyniadaki  | Research Student | European Institute | LSE 

Thesis: EU Migration and Daily Dilemmas among Street-Level Bureaucrats

This research focuses on the implementation of migration policies relating to asylum determination and to the migrants’ integration. Through extensive in-depth interviews with various categories of street-level bureaucrats (judges, lawyers, caseworkers, social workers, volunteers and activists) in the capital cities of Berlin and Athens, it investigates how these bureaucrats make decisions under conditions of very high pressure. More specifically, it looks at the micro-level tensions and the daily dilemmas these bureaucrats face, examining how these shape their decision-making, and ultimately how policy is put into practice.


Mr Philip Kessler | Research Student | Department of Political Economy | King's College London

Thesis: The Diffusion of Competition Policy in Western Europe

The spread of competition policy amongst EU member states is an important component of the ‘market turn’ in Europe. Yet, empirical evidence is scattered with regards to assessing what drove reform towards more comprehensive national competition regimes. This research project tries to shed light on this puzzle by examining the interdependent relationship between EU and member state competition policies.

Mr Alistair Marsden | Research Student | Department of Accounting | LSE

Thesis: How participants in a major research project engage with accounting schedules and how this influences the production of accounting and scientific knowledge.

The research motivation stems from earlier observations that attempts to resolve the complex social problems that major projects were established to solve in the first place were often ‘closed down’ before the problem was resolved and before the benefits could be realised. The time needed to generate the knowledge needed to solve the social complexity was usually foregone to meet unrealistic deadlines and to mitigate the risk of cost overruns. That major research projects have scientific discovery at their core is an important factor in the choice of field-work location.  It provides an ideal opportunity to study the tension between science, time and control. 


Ms Daphnee Papiasse | Research Student | European Institute | LSE

Thesis: Regulation of financial innovation in the European Union.

Research interests: Since the global financial crisis, the financial services sector has been marked by an unprecedented development of FinTech or financial technologies, which harness technologies (data technology, mobile technology, DLT, artificial intelligence, etc.) to provide a plethora of financial services and products. My research focuses on the question of EU regulation and innovation in the context of FinTech. More globally, I am interested in EU financial regulation and the EU's growing influence in global financial governance.


Mr Philip Schleifer | Research Student | International Relations Department | LSE

Thesis: Same Same but Different: The Diffusion and Variation of Multi-Stakeholder Sustainability Governance

In the early 1990s, a new organisational model emerged on the stage of global sustainability governance, combining multi-stakeholder participation with market-based regulation. It spread rapidly and widely in the global economy. Because of their transparency and inclusiveness, multi-stakeholder initiatives (MSIs) have been praised for their deliberative capacity and potential to reduce the democratic deficit of global governance institutions. However, empirical evidence suggests that the diffusion of the model has given rise to variation in these key dimensions of organisational design. With a focus on three MSIs in the agriculture industry – the most dynamic site of diffusion in recent years – this project examines the causes of this variation. Combining an in-depth case study design with a comparative analysis, its preliminary findings point to the background and lessons-learned of institutional entrepreneurs and the key role they play in the formation of dominant organisational coalitions.

Ms Maria Zhivitskaya | Research Student | Department of Accounting | LSE

Thesis: The Practice of Risk Oversight

In light of the recent financial crisis, there are many academic, consulting and regulatory statements about risk governance and oversight. Maria’s research presents a taxonomy of risk oversight within the UK financial system and aims to develop an understanding of what oversight means to different actors. The focus is on (1) micro-prudential oversight of financial institutions by the Bank of England’s PRA (and historic regulatory practices by the FSA), (2) board-level oversight of risk management, and (3) oversight of risks performed within organisations. The way these types of risk oversight articulate with each other is rapidly evolving, especially since the crisis revealed many flaws in the way risk was understood and managed.
