Dr Fabrizio De Francesco

Senior Lecturer

Politics

Personal statement

Fabrizio joined the School of Government and Public Policy in 2012. Before moving to Glasgow he was a Marie Curie postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zurich and a Premier Assistant at the Institut d'études politiques et internationales, University of Lausanne. He completed his PhD at the University of Exeter in 2010.

A revised version of his PhD thesis on policy diffusion has been published by the ECPR press. Focusing on regulatory impact as a case study, this book shows how the OECD transnational networks have framed and diffused such a policy innovation, but there is a limited extent of policy interdependence in the implementation and evaluation stages.
