Bob Hancké

In our time as academics and policymakers, we experienced a disconnect between theory and practice. To change this, we decided to start a company that provides Political Economic Analysis and Consulting Strategies - in short, PEACS.

Bob holds a PhD from MIT and is Associate Professor of Political Economy at the London School of Economics.
