Skyrman, Viktor

I’m researching financialization, industrial restructuring, covered bonds, public sector reform and institutional change. I’m broadly interested in political economy and more specifically financial market regulation, including how to finance the green transition, structural transformation and global economic development.

My position is mainly financed by Matts Carlgrens Stiftelse för vetenskaplig forskning och utbildning.
