Dr. Juan Munoz-Portillo

Philomathia Post-doctoral Research Associate,

Dr. Muñoz-Portillo received his PhD in Politics and International Relations from Dublin City University (DCU), in 2013, where he focused on the study of the effects of electoral systems on the behaviour of legislators. His research interests lie in comparative political economy and international political economy, in particular, the influence of political institutions on public spending distribution, and on sovereign debt markets. As a Philomathia Fellow, he is currently working on the project “The consequences of the politics of austerity in the European Union.” This project documents and describes the specific ways in which EU countries have implemented fiscal austerity programmes in the recent past, and it will analyse several of their social and political consequences. In addition, he continues his collaboration with colleagues from DCU on sovereign debt research.
