Event description: 

The European Studies council presents a lecture given by José Fernández-Albertos.
José Fernández-Albertos holds a Ph.D in Political Science from Harvard University. Since 2009, he is a permanent research fellow at the Institute for Policies and Public Goods at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). He has also taught comparative and international political economy at the Institut Barcelona d’Estudis Internacionals, the Universitat Pompeu Fabra, IE University, and the Universidad Carlos III in Madrid.
His research spans the fields of international political economy and comparative politics, and his more recent work analyzes the political underpinnings of monetary regimes, the institutional and social determinants of welfare state preferences, and most recently, the legacy of the great recession on policy preferences across Europe.
In February he was appointed senior advisor to Minister José Luis Escrivá at the Spanish Ministry for Inclusion, Social Security and Migrations, and he became Director General for Social Security Planning in June 2022.
