MEET DALIBOR ROHAC


Dalibor Rohac is a research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), where he studies European political and economic trends. He is concurrently a visiting fellow at the Max Beloff Centre for the Study of Liberty at the University of Buckingham in the UK and a fellow at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London.

Before joining AEI, Rohac was affiliated with the Cato Institute’s Center for Global Liberty and Prosperity, the London-based Legatum Institute, and the Center for the New Europe in Brussels. Much of his previous work has been very critical of the European Union, and he has fostered connections with many Eurosceptics, both in the intellectual and political sphere. In 2009, he also interned in the office of one of the leading critics of the European Union, the then-president of the Czech Republic, Václav Klaus.

Rohac’s analyses and commentary, focused predominantly on the political economy of Europe, have been published widely in the media, including in the New York Times, Financial Times, Foreign Policy, and Wall Street Journal. His scholarly articles have appeared in professional journals, among them Constitutional Political Economy, Economic Affairs, and the European Journal for the History of Economic Thought.

He holds a Ph.D. in political economy from King’s College London, an M.Phil. in economics from the University of Oxford, an M.A. in economics from George Mason University, and a B.A. in economics from Charles University in Prague.
