Cyril Benoît is CNRS Researcher, Centre for European studies and Comparative Politics, Sciences Po. His research interests are broadly in comparative and international political economy, with an emphasis on regulatory politics, corporate influence in policy-making (and vice-versa) and on the role of elected representatives in the governance of advanced capitalist economies.
He is currently working on two main projects. The first one examines how a series of European Union policies and regulations shape industrial organization in the insurance sector, particularly for firms operating in the areas of healthcare and occupational welfare. A second project studies legislative control and oversight of regulatory agencies in France and in the United Kingdom, and the motives of legislators in exerting such control.
Cyril Benoît has been a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Sheffield (2014-2015), Visiting Scholar at Hoover Institution at Stanford University (fall 2018) and Visiting Fellow at Nuffield College, University of Oxford (fall 2019). He received his Doctorate in Political Science from Sciences Po Bordeaux in 2016.
