Felipe Lauritzen

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

I am affiliated researcher with 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). I am also the recipient of a Young Researcher grant from the Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP).

My research concentrates on issues related to democracy in Brazil, and ways to improve its representation system by fighting socioeconomic, racial and gender inequalities in elections. I also do research on media plurality and regulation, and its links with democracy. In this exploration, I am supervised by Professor Julia Cagé, and sponsored by the Digital Economics Research Network.

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