George Tridimas is Professor of political economy at Ulster University

Research Interests

George's research interests are in political economy, public economics and law and economics.

He has published widely in topics such as mechanisms of collective decision-making, including elections and referendums, power-sharing arrangements in divided societies, the establishment of representative democracy, the size of government, the allocation of public expenditure, publicly provided goods and the economic behaviour of the private sector, and the economic analysis of the judiciary.

His most recent research examines the emergence, performance and fall of the direct democracy in Ancient Athens. His work combines theory, analysis of policy and applied econometrics and has a strong interdisciplinary element borrowing from history, political science and law.

At various times his research was funded by the British Academy and the ESRC.

He has held various visiting fellowships in Canada, the Czech Republic, Romania and the USA and is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

He is currently serving as a member of the editorial boards of the European Journal of Political Economy and Constitutional Political Economy and is Co-editor-in-Chief of the German-Greek Yearbook of Political Economy.
