Background

Sotiria joined the ETUI as a Senior Researcher in November 2010.
She has been studying macroeconomic policies and the economic governance in the EU, in particular the effects of the crisis responses and fiscal austerity on macroeconomic and labour market performance and on labour market and social policies. She is an occasional contributor to the Social Europe Journal blog and a member of the Advisory Committee of the Living Conditions and Quality of Life unit of the Eurofound in Dublin.

She earned her PhD in European Political Economy from the London School of Economics with a thesis on the interactions of macroeconomic policies and labour market institutions in shaping unemployment in Europe. Prior to joining the ETUI, she worked as economic policy analyst at the European Policy Centre in Brussels, a researcher for the Knowledge Economy programme of the Work Foundation in London and as an Associate Fellow for the European programme of Chatham House. Between 2006 and 2008, she was a research fellow at Trinity College Dublin, working on a project on the political economy of globalisation, de-industrialisation and the rise of the service sector. She spent several years teaching Economics of the EU and public policy at the LSE, King's College London, Birkbeck College and the University of Athens.

Sotiria is the proud mother of two children.
