  • Biography/ Background

    Dr. Naoise McDonagh specializes in international political economy, institutional economics, development and comparative capitalism. He has a BA in political science and philosophy, and an MA in international development, both from the National University of Ireland, Galway. Naoise has a PhD degree from the University of Auckland, specializing in institutional economics and the evolution of economic systems.

    In the tertiary sector he has extensive experience teaching, conference speaking and publishing original research. He has experience collaborating with international organisations such as the UNDP on development issues.

    Naoise’s research has recently examined the factors driving financial crises, the political economy of differential regional and national economic growth, and the institutional underpinnings of successful development. Naoise research has appeared in Routledge’s Frontiers in Political Economy series, Culture and Organization, the Journal of Evolutionary Economics and the Journal of Economic Issues. Research in progress analyses the political economy of WTO reform and the growing shift to plurilateral trade agreements. Of special concern is the re-emergence of state-led capitalism and the growing role of state-owned enterprises in global trade. Naoise welcomes collaboration on these research interests.
