Dr Matt Barlow

  • Lecturer in International Political Economy (Economic & Social History)

Biography

I joined Glasgow in 2023 as Lecturer in International Political Economy. My interests are in the political economy of taxation, political economy of development and the global governance of development. My research is situated in two regions of the global South: Latin America and Africa, and explores themes of tax ideologies, sociology of the developing state, political economy of gender and regionalism. I am a Research Fellow at the Institut Barcelona d'Estudis Internacionals (IBEI) part of the Universidad Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. I have twice been a visiting researcher at the Universidad Torcuato di Tella in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Before joining the University of Glasgow, I was a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of International Development at King’s College London. Before this I was an Associate Lecturer in the Department of Politics at the University of York where I was awarded my PhD. During this time, I also worked as a research associate in the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre at the University of York where I was part of a team working with academic and civil society partners across a number of funded projects: GCRF-RCUK funded Thanzi la Onse (Health for All), GCRF funded Gender and Health Systems After Covid-19: The Role of Policy and the GCRF funded The natural resources economy in South America: Extraction, Sustainability and Citizenship.

I have been awarded funding from the Economic, Social and Research Council (ESRC).
