STEFANO MERLO

I am a Junior Lecturer at the VU Amsterdam's John Stuart Mill College where I am teaching the seminars of three economics courses in the PPE undergraduate program. I write about the Economic and Monetary Union from a macroeconomic and philosophical perspective.  I am applying republican political theory to the Eurozone to understand which principles of international justice should apply to a currency union. I studied Economic Policy (MSc) and Legal and Political Theory (M.A.) at the University College of London.
