I am Dr Matthias (Matt) Kranke. Currently, I am a Senior Research FellowLink opens in a new window at the Käte Hamburger Kolleg / Centre for Global Cooperation Research, University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany (on leave from my role as post-doctoral researcherLink opens in a new window at the University of Kassel, Germany. My Ph.D. is from the University of Warwick, awarded in 2018. During my time as non-resident Honorary Research Fellow of the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, I will continue to work on issues related to global governance while seeking to foster and deepen collaborations with PAIS researchers on questions ranging from indicators to post-growth politics.
I am currently (co-)leading two externally funded research projects:
(1) I am coordinating a 3-year Scientific Network on ‘The Global Politics of Post-Growth' (2022–24), funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG). The Network tweets @GPPG_networkLink opens in a new window.

While my background is in International Relations (IR) and International Political Economy (IPE), much of my research is interdisciplinary. In combining IR and IPE with fields as diverse as organisation studies and ecological economics, I address the following main themes:
- Global governance
- International organisations (IOs), expertise and inter-organisational relations
- Socioecological sustainability
- Economic growth and post-growth
- Numbers (benchmarks, indicators and rankings) & futures (anticipatory global governance)
