Christopher Mitchell’s research explores the politics of finance and financial crises, especially in the European Union. He has conducted research on how the differing forms of bank interdependence produced more generous bank bailouts in Germany than in the US and UK in the 2007-2009 crisis. His current research is focused on financial reforms in the European Union. He teaches courses on international political economy, the European Union, and the role of trade in US foreign policy.
