I am a political theorist with some training in Economics and Law as well, whose work is rooted in Habermasion and/or Foucaultian critical theory. Over the last decade, the emphasis of my research has been on the study of neoliberalism, both, in its ‘actually existing’ form and, particularly, its theoretical discourse. Lately, I have become interested in the (international) decline of mainstream/moderate conservatism and how it relates to larger tectonic shifts in the political landscape, the rise of ‘populism’ and the widely held diagnosis of a crisis of liberal democracy.
