 Research projects
 

My research is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF) and the Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS). I have three ongoing projects on the politics of fiscal austerity, the impact of austerity on government economic credibility, and on U.S.-Chinese economic cooperation:

 

- How to design politically sustainable responses to fiscal pressure, SNIS project (CHF 262'611, co-coordinator)

 

- Cooperation and Conflict in Chinese-U.S. Economic Relations, SNF project no. 182371 (CHF 494'579)

 

- Contingent Signals: The political preconditions for successful economic stablization, SNF project no. 165480 (CHF 517'511) - finished
