We’re happy to announce that Professor Tim Sinclair has joined the SPERI team as a Visiting Fellow until May 2014.

Tim is an Associate Professor of International Political Economy at the University of Warwick. He is also a visiting faculty member at Kyung Hee University in Suwon, Korea (near Seoul). His research focuses on puzzles in the politics of global finance, rating and evaluation systems, and emerging concepts of global governance.

His first book, on the major credit rating agencies, was published by Cornell University Press in 2005. Since then he has published books on banks (co-authored with Lena Rethel) and approaches to global governance. A recent article on capital mobility co-authored with Jeffrey M. Chwieroth was published in the Review of International Political Economy.

Whilst visiting SPERI he will be working on a new book manuscript about the rating agencies, examining their role in and survival of, the global financial crisis.
