Felipe Lauritzen

I am a PhD candidate in Economics at Sciences Po Paris, since 2022. 

My research concentrates on issues related to democracy in Brazil, and ways to improve our representation system by fighting socioeconomic, racial and gender inequalities in elections. In this exploration, I am supervised by the acknowledged economist Prof. Julia Cagé, and sponsored by the Digital Economics Research Network.

I am also an affiliated researcher to the National Observatory of Women in Politics of the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies, and a research assistant to the CEPR Media Plurality Research and Policy Network (RPN).

Besides this, I have a practioner career in international development organisations, comprising +6 years at OECD, UNESCO, UNDP and AFD. In 2020, I co-founded Conférence Pour le Brésil.
