Malcolm Campbell-Verduyn is a political scientist broadly interested in international political economy and private actors, whose regional focus is Europe. His publications have examined the evolution of global financial governance since the most recent crisis, the influence of the European Union in these evolving arrangements, and the responses of private actors to contestations of their authority since 2007-8.

His current research investigates the growing power and legitimacy of technical systems that include emergent technologies such as Bitcoin. Based on qualitative methods involving expert interviews and a theoretical approach emphasizing the authority of technical systems, Dr. Campbell-Verduyn’s postdoctoral research extends his primary interests in novel sites and forms of authority in global finance.
