Professor in International Political Economy and Economic Sociology, Department of Business and Politics at Copenhagen Business School (CBS), Denmark
Leonard Seabrooke is interested in the micro-level elements that permit the macro composition of the international political economy and transnational governance. This includes: how professionals compete and coordinate to establish new regulations and new markets; the professional careers of those involved in international economic governance and transnational activism; generational conflicts between groups seeking to secure housing and financial assets within different national systems of residential capitalism; the role of social taboos in family and household formation in different national welfare systems; and the everyday politics behind particular national political and economic institutions. His work frequently draws upon analytical and methodological tools from political economy and economic sociology, including sequence analysis and social network analysis, among others.
