Nikos Sotirakopoulos studied international and European studies at Athens’ Panteion University, before moving onto a PhD in law and environmental law at the University of Kent, where his thesis focused on the demise of radical progressive politics under the influence of anti-modernist ideas in Western culture. The research for his doctorate focused on how concepts such as economic growth and individual agency have been problematised in the narratives both of the New Left and of political and intellectual elites. He is also interested in economic sociology and the application of the ideas of economic schools of thought within social theory. Currently, he is researching the rise of the sharing economy and the prospects it holds for cheaper access to services.
