Dr Bernardo Rangoni
Senior Lecturer



Bernardo Rangoni is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Politics and International Relations of the University of York, as well as Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow in the Department of Political Science of the University of Antwerp, and Visiting Fellow at the Robert Schuman Centre for Advanced Studies of the European University Institute.

Previously, he was Fellow in European and Comparative Political Economy at the London School of Economics, Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Amsterdam, and Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute, as well as Visiting Researcher at Yale Law School.

Initially educated in social sciences in his home country, he went on to earn a master's degree in regulation and then a PhD in political science, both from the LSE.



Bernardo works in the fields of regulatory governance, public policy, and political economy. His work has appeared (or is forthcoming) in Governance, European Union Politics, Journal of Common Market Studies, Regulation & Governance, Journal of European Public Policy, a Handbook on Theories of Governance, and, perhaps most importantly, his first monograph – Experimentalist Governance: From Architectures to Outcomes, with Oxford University Press.



At the University of York, Bernardo contributes to masters degrees in public policy, notably convening the module on theories of the policy process. Previously, he taught, mentored, supervised, and marked on political economy, regulation, and research design and methods at the London School of Economics, University of Amsterdam, Moscow State University, and King’s College London. Upon invitation, he also delivered ad hoc lectures at Luiss University, Queen Mary University of London, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Hertie School of Governance, and Harvard University.


External activities


Policy engagement

Bernardo enjoys contact with policymakers and business leaders, both as sources of information and as potential beneficiaries of his research (e.g., policy insights on institutional design). Prior and in parallel to his academic career, he worked as a lobbyist for the Union of the European Electricity Industry, and as a consultant for Oxford Economic Research Associates. Bernardo’s continuous engagement with interdisciplinary, policy-relevant research is inter alia reflected in the individual project for which he has been granted funding (€ 166,320.000) by the European Commission.
