    Biographical Statement

    Jose A. Puppim de Oliveira is a senior research fellow at the United Nations University (UNU-IAS) in Tokyo, Japan. He was also assistant director of the Institute of Advanced Studies (UNU-IAS) in Yokohama between 2009 and 2014. His research is multi and interdisciplinary involving applied social sciences and their links with the natural sciences and engineering. His academic expertise cuts across different fields including planning, environmental policy, development studies, business and society, public administration, urban studies and governance. His recent research and policy interests concentrate broadly in the area of political economy of sustainable development. He is particularly interested in patterns of governance, institution building and policy implementation at different levels, looking at how global institutions are interlinked to local governance and action, and vice-versa. He has carried out policy-oriented empirical research, undertaking quantitative and qualitative analyses of governance involving diverse groups of actors (e.g., different levels of governments, international organisations, NGOs, SMEs, industries), economic sectors, regions of the world and scales (e.g., international, national and local). His experience comprises work in more than 20 countries, including Brazil, Argentina, Ecuador, Uruguay, USA, Japan, Germany, Spain, Portugal, United Kingdom, India, China, Indonesia, Ghana, Nigeria and Angola.

    Previously, he worked at the University College London (UK), at the Brazilian School of Public and Business Administration (EBAPE) of the Getulio Vargas Foundation (FGV), at the University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain) as a European Commission’s Marie Curie Fellow, and as an instructor, consultant and researcher for several organisations such as the OECD, the World Bank Institute, state and national governments, and various NGOs and small and large firms in the private sector. He has published seven books and a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals. He is editor-in-chief of the journal Public Administration and Development (PAD, Wiley-Blackwell). Jose holds a degree in Engineering from the Aeronautics Technological Institute (ITA, Brazil); a Master of Regional Planning from Hokkaido University (Japan) and a Ph.D. in Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT, USA).
