Biography

Bernhard Reinsberg is a Reader in Politics and International Relations at the University of Glasgow and a Research Associate in Political Economy at the Centre for Business Research at the University of Cambridge. He holds a PhD in Political Science from the University of Zurich, an MA in Comparative and International Studies at ETH Zurich and BA degrees in Political Science (Freie Universität Berlin) and Mathematics (University in Hagen).

His research is on the political economy of international organisations—such as the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund—and seeks to contribute to a better understanding of what drives their behavior and when their development interventions are effective. As awardee of a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship, he examines the impact of earmarked funding to international organisations on their ability to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.
