Harry Begg is a Max Weber Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre of Advanced Studies and a member of the Scientific Team at the Florence School of Banking and Finance. Harry’s ongoing projects include a book project evaluating financial reform as punctuated episodes of democratic politics as well as an early-stage investigation which uses computational methods to understand how global financial crises and scandals evolve transnationally through news media. His main research areas are financial services regulation, globalisation and urban economics, which he studies primarily through a comparative and political lens.

Harry previously completed doctoral studies at Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government, where he was a European Research Council scholar researching post-2008 financial policymaking across several wealthy democracies. Most recently, he was a Lecturer in Political Economy at King’s College London. He has taught undergraduate courses in Comparative Political Economy, the Political Economy of Finance, and Comparative Politics. Harry completed his studies at Oxford, UCL and Harvard.
