A Single, Green Market for Capital? A critical political economy perspective on the completion of the Capital Markets Union

The Department of Social Sciences and Business, Roskilde University, invites applications for a position as PhD of International Studies from 1 October or as soon as possible thereafter. The position is a double degree in collaboration with the Political Science Department of the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

The overall period for the project is limited to three years. During the first 18 months, the candidate will be based at Radboud University and during the last 18 months of the project at Roskilde University. Physical presence at the respective university during this period is mandatory. That means that the PhD position involves moving from the Netherlands to Denmark in 2024 (the moving costs will be partially covered by the universities).

If the PhD process lives up to the requirements at the two universities, you will be awarded with a degree from each of the universities (a double degree).

Description of the PhD project

The financial system of the EU has gone through a turbulent time since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic. This gave renewed impetus and opportunity for the European Commission to accelerate the larger plan to unite capital markets in Europe through the Capital Markets Union (CMU).

The CMU stands at a crucial conjuncture of European market integration; as an institutional process, it is marked by the fundamental fault lines between financial market liberalization and attempts to regulate the sector, while at the same time ensuring a transition that is green and inclusive. These developments are set in a broader context of far-reaching structural changes and geopolitical rivalries in the global economy more generally, and the changing role of banks vis-a-vis other financial sector agents in the provision of credit and/or equity in particular. Explaining the politics that inform the CMU relaunch hence provides an important building block for understanding the EU’s attempts to unlock investments against the backdrop of the unfolding integration trajectory of the European political economy.

Applicants are invited to send in a project description addressing this theme. We encourage applicants from a wide range of approaches and perspectives.

Your project description shall be no more than four pages, excluding a bibliography.
