Research information

Pieter Vanhuysse has been Professor of Comparative Welfare State Research at the University of Southern Denmark since 2015. He holds a PhD in Government and an MSc in European Politics and Policy from the London School of Economics and a Master in Economics from the University of Leuven. 

Trained as an economist and political scientist, and reading widely also in sociology, demography, and political ethics, Pieter’s research contributions are explicitly interdisciplinary. In comparative political economy and political sociology of welfare states, he has a strong focus on three subfields: (1) the interplay of pensions, human capital and demographic change; (2) intergenerational justice and intergenerational policies in aging societies; and (3) varieties of welfare state capitalism with a special emphasis on the new EU member states. 

Pieter has (co-)authored over 30 publications in international peer-reviewed journals and over 45 chapters, policy briefs and research reports (>950 citations, H-index=18, i-10 Index=30 (Google Scholar)). IHe has published inter al. in European J. Political Economy, West European Politics, Politics, Public Choice, J. Public Policy, J. European Social Policy, J. Social Policy, Social Policy & Administration, and Administration & Society. He has co-edited Post-Communist Welfare Pathways (Palgrave, 2009) and Ageing Populations in Post-industrial Democracies (Routledge, 2012). His book Divide and Pacify : Strategic Social Policies and Political Protests in Postcommunist Democracies (CEU Press, 2006) was nominated for the American Sociological Association's Best Book Award in Political Sociology.

In addition to lecturing at over 30 institutes of higher learning, Pieter has had a wide impact also on the public policy community in Europe and the Americas. This has included addresses at the Inter-American Social Security Conference in Mexico City 2011, San Salvador 2013, and MIT Cambridge 2015, at the International Social Security Association in Jerusalem 2014 and Budapest 2015, at the Global Economic Symposium Rio de Janeiro 2012 and at the European Centre General Assembly Meetings at the United Nations Office Vienna (2008-2014).
