Bio :

Paulus Wagner’s research at LIEPP-Sciences Po focuses on connections between changes in welfare regimes and voting for radical and populist political parties amongst « advanced liberal democracies » during the 2010s. 

He finished a BA in Translation and Interpreting at the University of Vienna and the Russian State University for the Humanities in Moscow. After this, he completed an MA in International Political Economy at King’s College, London, and another research master’s in Social Sciences (specialisation: Comparative Development Studies) at EHESS, Paris.

Besides this academic pathway, he gained valuable insights into other professional fields by completing internships in journalism (with DIE WELT in Berlin and ZDF in Vienna), diplomacy (Austrian Embassy in Zagreb, Croatia) and oil&gas industry (OMV, Vienna).
