Dr Aris Boukouras

Lecturer in Economics


I am a Lecturer in Economics and I joined the University of Leicester in June 2014. I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Warwick and before joining Leicester I was a Lecturer in the School of Business at the University of Edinburgh.


My main research interests lie in the area of Political Economy and its applications. I have published my work in Economic Theory and the Canadian Journal of Economics. The latest projects I am involved are in the area of populism and the credibility of democratic institutions. You can find more details in my CV.



"Efficient Allocations in Economies with Asymmetric Information When the Realized Frequency of Types is Common Knowledge" (2016), with Kostas Koufopoulos, Economic Theory, vol. 64, no. 1, pp. 75-98.

"The Citizen-Candidate Model with Imperfect Policy Control: Strategic Delegation and Polarization" (2016), with Emre Aytimur and Robert Schwager, Canadian Journal of Economics, vol. 49, no. 3, pp. 997-1015.

"Voting as a Signaling Device" (2014), with Emre Aytimur and Robert Schwager, Economic Theory, vol. 55, no. 3, pp. 753-777.



I am willing to supervise students who are interested in political economy and the interaction between populism and economics in particular.
