He has been a Senior Advisor at the World Bank in Washington DC and a Senior Fellow at UNU/WIDER in Helsinki. He co-founded and was Director of a London based think tank, the European Policy Forum between 1992 and 2008. Since then he has been a Senior Visiting Fellow at the London School of Economics. His main fields of interest are constitutional theory and regulatory governance, including international governance and the European Union.
Frank Vibert is the author of a number of books, including Making a 21st Century Constitution: Playing Fair in Modern Democracies (2018), The New Regulatory Space: Reframing Democratic Governance (2014), Democracy and Dissent: The Challenge of International Rule Making (2011), The Rise of the Unelected: Democracy and the New Separation of Powers (2007) and Europe Simple, Europe Strong: The Future of European Governance (2001).
Check out Vibert's View, my blog for the general reader, where I write on the following broad themes: the way we reason, referring to what is known as rational choice, bounded rationality and associative rationality; regulatory governance, including the regulation of civil society and markets; and global governance and international organizations, including the institutions of federal or quasi federal systems such as the EU.
