Dieter Plehwe (Dr. habil.) studied political science, economics, and history in Marburg and New York.
He taught Political Sociology and International Political Economy courses at Philipps University of Mar-
burg, Yale University, Free University of Berlin, University of Vienna, and University of Kassel. He was

ledge in a Global Age” (2004/5). He spent six months at the Minda de Gunzburg Center for European
Studies at Harvard University in 2016/17, working on the resilience of neoliberalism following the global
financial crisis. His (co-edited) publications include The Road from Mont Pèlerin. The Making of the Neo-
liberal Thought Collective
(Harvard University Press 2009), Economists and the Welfare State (Oxford
University Press 2017), Nine Lives of Neoliberalism (Verso 2020), The Changing Politics and Policy of
y (Policy Press 2021), and Market Civilizations. Neoliberals East and South (Zone Books 2022).
His research interests are related to the larger question of the history, cultural political economy, and trans-
formation of globalized capitalism, including regional integration in North America and Western Europe; the
history, ideas, and varieties of neoliberalism in Europe, Latin- and North America; transnational expert, con-
sulting and lobby/advocacy networks; and most recently, issues and questions around global warming-related
policy mobility and conflicts. Plehwe serves as an editor of Critical Policy Studies.

At SCAS, Plehwe’s work will be focused on the global Atlas network of neoliberal think tanks and climate
policy, and on the Balaton Group efforts to develop an ecological system perspective following the Club of
Rome studies on the limits of growth.
