ORFEO FIORETOS is an associate professor in the Department of Political Science at Temple University where he teaches political economy and international relations. He is the recipient of the Distinguished Teaching Award from the College of Liberal Arts, and has served as Chair of the Undergraduate and Departmental Honors Programs.
Fioretos’ research is focused on the politics of markets and international institutions. In Creative Reconstructions: Multilateralism and European Varieties of Capitalism After 1950 (Cornell University Press, 2011), he explores the role of international economic institutions in shaping the evolution of three alternative models of advanced capitalism through technological revolutions, economic globalization and the creation of dense fabrics of international institutions that regulate markets. His ongoing research focuses on the origins and evolution of informal institutions of global economic governance.
Fioretos’ articles are published in International Organization, Review of International Political Economy, Comparative Political Studies, Journal of European Public Policy, and Review of International Studies. His work also appears in Varieties of Capitalism: The Institutional Foundations of Competitive Advantage (edited by Peter A. Hall and David Soskice), Making History: European Integration and Institutional Change at Fifty (edited by Sophie Meunier and Kathleen McNamara), and the Oxford Handbook of the European Union (edited by Erik Jones, Anand Menon, and Stephen Weatherill).
Fioretos is co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Historical Institutionalism (Oxford University Press, 2016), with Tulia G. Falleti and Adam Sheingate, as well as editor of International Politics and Institutions in Time (Oxford University Press, forthcoming). And, with Mark A. Pollack, he is writing a new interdisciplinary introduction to global studies called The World (Oxford University Press).
