Dr Julian Limberg is a Lecturer in Public Policy in the Department of Political Economy at King’s College London. Prior to joining King’s, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the Geschwister Scholl Institute of Political Science, Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, where he worked on a project investigating the causes and consequences of policy accumulation.

Research interests

Julian’s research lies at the intersection of comparative public policy and political economy. In particular, he is interested in the dynamics of inequality, tax policy-making, and fiscal capacity building over the long run of history. One aspect of his research has focused on the effect of financial crises on tax progressivity. Furthermore, he is part of a larger project that investigates the historical lineages of the modern tax state worldwide.

His research is published in the European Journal of Political Research, Socio-Economic Review, the Review of International Organizations, and the Journal of European Public Policy (among others).
