Area of expertise: IR, Constructivist IPE, Risk, Financial Market Regulation
Oliver Kessler has since his monograph in the governance of risk in financial markets (2008) tackled finance through a combination of a profound understanding of economics and a deep engagement with social theory. His publications on constructivist IPE (2013), Hayek (2012), and financialisation and shadow banks (Kessler/Wilhelm 2013) have all played an important role in advancing the study of IPE and finance in the small but active community of German IPE. With his links into IR, he has also always taken great care to keep both fields in conversation (2016; 2012), an approach which our research network wishes to continue.
