About

Peter Hall is a political economist whose current research centres on understanding how the growth regimes of the developed democracies change over time, and the role of politics in that process, including the political dilemmas created by the Euro crisis.

Hall has also explored the methodology of social science, with the aim of improving how complex chains of causation in the social world are established. The emphasis is on how institutions and social coalitions interact to structure politics across space and time.
