Dr Pedro Ramos Pinto
MA, MPhil, PhD
Staff Fellow and Director of Studies in History; University Senior Lecturer in International Economic History
Dr Ramos Pinto is a Lecturer in International Economic History.
His current research explores the creation, evolution and implications of authoritarian welfare regimes in Southern Europe and Latin America. This has evolved from earlier work which explored the interaction between the Portuguese Dictatorship and its citizens to explain the emergence of social movements of the urban poor during the Carnation Revolution (1974-1976). He is also interested in understanding how contemporary inequalities are shaped by the past, bringing a more long-term view to explain how and why societies distribute resources, opportunities and capabilities.
