Marcus Wolf has been a research associate in the research group since September 2014 and is also a doctoral student at the Social Science Faculty of the University of Bremen. He received his bachelor degree in Philosophy and Social Sciences from the Humboldt University of Berlin and his master degree in Political Economy of European Integration from the Berlin School of Economics and Law. For the duration of his studies he received a scholarship from the Rosa-Luxemburg-Foundation.
From November 2011 to September 2014 he has worked as a student assistant in the project group Modes of Economic Governance at the Berlin Social Science Center (WZB).
His main research interests lie in the field of International Political Economy and Economic Sociology. His dissertation project addresses the question how the concept of financial literacy education evolved as a global policy project over the recent decade and to which extent the financial crisis has both changed the organizational field around financial literacy (with the growing importance of consumer organizations in the post-crisis period) as well as the concept itself (with a shift from investment to debt). Alongside his interest in financial education, his research also covers issues of public & private debt, financialization and civil society organizing in EU and global financial regulation.
