About me

Gianmarco Fifi is the Nicholas Barr Fellow in European Political Economy at LSE. Prior to joining the European Institute, he was a doctoral student and Associate Tutor at the University of Warwick. He holds a BA from LUISS Guido Carli, a MA in International Political Economy from King’s College London and a PhD from Warwick. His thesis investigated the ways in which left-wing formations in Italy have come to provide key support for fiscal austerity and labour-market flexibilisation since the 1980s. 

Beyond his doctorate, Gianmarco’s research focusses on how trends within civil society facilitate changes and continuity in policy-making frameworks and how these relate to the process of European integration. He is particularly interested in the ways in which economic crises tend to change actors’ policy preferences as well as their perception of the future of Europe.  His research has been published in the Journal of European Public Policy and Review of International Political Economy (among other journals). 

Gianmarco has taught, mentored and marked in political economy, while his research has been awarded several grants including two Einaudi Foundation Scholarships and a PAIS PhD Studentship from the University of Warwick.
