Filipe R. Campante is Associate Professor of Public
Policy. He is interested in political economy and economic
development, with special emphasis on understanding the constraints
that are faced by politicians and governments beyond elections and
formal "checks and balances". His research has focused on the
constraints imposed by the spatial distribution of population, the
media, political protest, lobbying, and campaign contributions, and
their effects on corruption, governance, polarization, fiscal
policy, and political instability. Born and raised in Rio de
Janeiro, Brazil, he holds a PhD from Harvard University, an MA from
the Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro, and a BA from
the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, all in economics.
