Stefano FalconeECARES, Université libre de Bruxelles
I am interested in politics since the end of high school. After my Master’s in Political Sciences, I pursued my studies in Economics at the University of Siena. I am currently enrolled in the PhD program in Economics at ECARES, Université libre de Bruxelles, where I am acquiring the technical knowledge necessary to answer questions in political economy and development using microdata and quasi-experimental tools. My research in the PhD program at ECARES addresses questions on conflict from three perspectives: conflict over land, labor and housing. My research agenda for the future lies at the intersection of development economics and political economy with a focus on collective action in political mobilization and the externalities of property rights.
