Sarah Bauerle Danzman is an expert on the political economy of international investment and finance. She researches how domestic and multinational firms influence and adapt to investment regulation, the nexus of national security and investment, and how rules governing capital shape global networks of ownership and production. Her book, Merging Interests: When Domestic Firms Shape FDI Policy (Cambridge University Press, 2019), examines how changes in global and local credit conditions affect domestic firms’ policy preferences over regulation of foreign investors, and explores how firms leverage their power resources to influence regulatory structures. In 2019-2020, she was Council on Foreign Relations International Affairs Fellow, working in the U.S. Department of State as a Policy Advisor and Foreign Investment Security Case Analyst in the Office of Investment Affairs. Her work has been published or is forthcoming in outlets including International StudiesQuarterly, Perspective on Politics, Review of International Political Economy, Review of International Organizations, Business and Politics, and International Interactions.
