Rohr Visiting Professor at the Department of Government and the Center of Jewish Studies at Harvard University.

Arie Krampf is a tenured Associate Professor for Political Economy and International Studies at the School of Government and Society at the Academic College of Tel Aviv Yaffo. His main areas of interest, research and teaching are Comparative Political Economy and International Political Economy.

In the comparative political economy research, He focuses on the political economy of small open economies. I am interested in the way geopolitical circumstances shape small states’ growth strategies. Within this research project, I am studying the impact of Israel’s geopolitical circumstances on its growth models. He was recently awarded a  highly competitive 3-year research grant from the Israel Science Foundation. This research project, Israel Growth Strategy in the Post-Fordist Era: Ideology, Security and Economy (October 2019-September 2022), investigates how the perception of security threats by Israeli decisionmakers affected economic policy choices and determined Israel’s path to the neoliberal era. His recent book on the topic is The Israeli Path to Neoliberalism: The State, Continuity, and Change (Routledge 2018).

Krampf’s second research topic is financial globalization and the evolution of the global monetary and financial system. Within this research topic, he has published articles about the European Central Bank and its impact on the European Union, the consolidation of the Eurodollar market in the 1970s, and on consolidation of the law inflation monetary regime in the 1990s. Currently, his research focuses on the declining monetary power of the US during the 1990s.

Besides teaching and research, Prof. Krampf is also active in the public discourse. He publishes OpEds occasionally in Israeli newspapers The Marker and Globes on economic and international issues.
