Matthew DiGiuseppe is an assistant professor of International Relations at the Institute of Political Science. His research interests lie at the intersection of international political economy and security studies.
Much of his research focuses on how variance in a state’s access to global sovereign credit markets influences the internal and external security decisions of politicians. More recently, he has begun to examine the individual level micro-foundation of sovereign debt crises that shape political incentives to constrain or ignore mounting sovereign debt burdens. Beyond debt politics, he has also published research on alliance politics, individual-level preferences towards trade agreements, the effect of non-governmental organizations on state capacity, respect for physical integrity rights, and foreign direct investment location.
Before joining the Institute of Political Science at Leiden, Matthew was an assistant professor the University of Mississippi for six years. He received his Ph.D. from Binghamton University in 2012 and holds a M.A. and BA from Saint John’s University in New York. His work has been published in the British Journal of Political Science, International Studies Quarterly, the Journal of Peace Research, Political Research Quarterly, Foreign Policy Analysis, Economics & Politics, Business & Politics, and International Interactions.
