More information about Vera Scepanovic


My research focuses on the institutional implications of dependent development, and the role of the European Union as a development agent, both in its member states and in third countries.

I also have a long-standing interest in the politics of work, including transformation of work relations under the impact of globalization and the effect of digitalization on our understanding and regulation of work.


Vera has a PhD in Political Economy from the Central European University in Budapest.

She is a member of the editorial board of Transfer: European Review of Labour and Reseach.

Her teaching portfolio includes courses in EU economics, EU external economic relations, politics of regional integration, economic development, policy analysis, and research design.
