Florence Dafe is a political economist at the Chair of European and Global Governance of the Hochschule für Politik /TUM School of Governance at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). Her research and teaching cover a number of themes related to international political economy and comparative political economy, with a particular focus on global financial governance. Florence’s research interests revolve around finance and development, especially the domestic and external political constraints that governments in developing countries face in governing their financial sectors. The question which drives her research is how much policy space governments in developing countries have in governing their financial sectors in a context of globalisation and financialisation. Florence has written on the factors which shape the structural power of finance in developing countries, the strategies developing countries pursue in navigating global banking standards, the spread of financial inclusion policies, the political economy of central banking in developing countries, and the development of local currency bond markets in Africa. Prior to joining the Chair of European and Global Governance, Florence was a Fellow in International Political Economy at the Department of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and lecturer in International Political Economy at City, University of London. She is also an associate researcher at the German Development Institute. Florence holds a Masters degree in Development Studies from the LSE and a PhD in Development Studies from the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex.
