I am Professor of Public Policy at the Faculty of Social and Economic Sciences at the University of Bamberg. Previously I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Global Governance research unit at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB) (2007-2012). I received my PhD from Jacobs University Bremen (2007). My research interests and teaching are in international and comparative political economy, institutionalism, governance and globalization, taxation, financial regulation and social policy.Tweets by thomas_rixen Follow @thomas_rixen
