Jeffrey Sommers is visiting faculty in Economic History at SSE Riga, and created the Andre Gunder Frank Memorial Library at the school.
His research focuses on global political economy, global governance, hegemonic transitions, and spatial fixes to the long economic crisis. Central to this work is research on European Studies, with an emphasis on labor migration in Europe within the framework of the wider economic, political and regulatory regimes. In addition to his many academic publications, he has published in The Financial Times, The Guardian, The European Voice, and many others.
Dr. Sommers is primarily based in the US, but has several years experience in the Baltics on Fulbright and other grants.
