Recognition of Distinction

4th November 2020


Congratulations to Magdalen Fellow Jane Gingrich who has been awarded the title of Professor of Comparative Political Economy in this year’s University of Oxford Recognition of Distinction awards.

Jane’s research interests involve comparative political economy and comparative social policy. She is currently completing a book manuscript on third way social democracy, examining the changing electoral and policy fortunes of mainstream European left parties.

She is additionally working on a European Research Council funded project on the politics of post-war education reform, looking at both the political drivers of varying educational structures and the long-run consequences for social mobility and the regional concentration of skills.

Finally, she is working on a number of small projects related to differentiated geographic and household effects of automation.
