Dr Davide Luca

Subject Economic Geography
Fellow type Postdoctoral By-Fellows
Year started 2019


Davide is a Research Associate at the Bennett Institute for Public Policy. His research explores the politics of local and regional development, with an emphasis on the political economy of regional inequality, distributive politics, and local governance.

Davide’s work tries to answer questions such as: What are the political consequences of the deep spatial inequalities that have been opening up across many advanced economies, and what can policy-makers do about it? What are the geographical effects of electoral politics on government spending decisions? Do territorial governance and ‘perverse institutions’ such as organized crime affect policy delivery at the local level?

Before joining the Bennett Institute Davide was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School of Government, worked for the European Commission, and consulted for the European Parliament. He holds a PhD in Economic Geography from the London School of Economics, where he is currently a Visiting Fellow.
