    Personal profile

    General

    Davide Vampa is a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations and Director of postgraduate taught programmes in the PIR department. Previously he was a Senior Lecturer in Public Policy at De Montfort University in Leicester and Assistant Professor in Methods at The University of Nottingham. He completed his doctorate at the European University Institute in Florence. He is co-convenor of the PSA Italian Politics Specialist Group. 

    Research Interests

    Davide's research focuses on multi-level party politics and public policy. In particular he is interested in the politics of welfare in countries, such as Italy, Spain and the UK, that have witnessed the gradual strengthening of regions and devolved administrations as arenas of social policy making. Currently he is working on a project that studies the adjustments of regional governments to austerity and their response to the fiscal constraint imposed by central governments in the aftermath of the Great Recession (with Dr Simon Toubeau, University of Nottingham).

    Davide is also co-investigator (with Dr Ed Turner) of a DAAD-funded project on the crisis of the German Social Democratic Party. Additionally, he has worked and published on the rise of populist parties in Western Europe.
