Leon Wansleben heads new Research Group on the Sociology of Public Finances and Debt

Leon Wansleben has been Research Group Leader of the "Sociology of Public Finances and Debt" research group at the MPIfG since January 2019. His group is interested in the central role public finances play in the social discourse surrounding rising levels of indebtedness. It explores how accounting techniques and evaluation practices shape and reflect political struggles over public finances by linking approaches from political and fiscal sociology with those from social studies of finance and financialization. Leon Wansleben was previously Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
