Jack Seddon

Lloyd’s Scholar Award, Georgetown University - Global Reinsurance Markets

I am Associate Professor of International Political Economy at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan. I am originally from Bath in the United Kingdom. I work at the intersection between international political economy and economic history. While at Georgetown, I will pursue research into global reinsurance markets, focusing on the impact of new technologies and actors. I have worked at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy and Queen’s University Belfast. I have also held visiting positions at the University of Pennsylvania, the Graduate Institute in Geneva and Exeter University. I received my M.Phil. and my Ph.D. from the University of Oxford. Before beginning my graduate studies, I worked as a capital markets lawyer in London and Brussels. In my free time, I love to play golf, read, and exercise. I look forward to traveling and learning from people across the US during my fellowship.
