Sebastian Jävervall

Welcome to my website!

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Economics, Uppsala University. I am also affiliated with the Uppsala Center for Fiscal Studies (UCFS) and the Association of Swedish Development Economists (ASWEDE). My research focuses on the political economy of development. In particular, I am interested in how corruption interacts with the organization of the state, its effect on policy implementation and the quality of service provision.


Fields: Development Economics, Political Economy, Applied Econometrics.


I am on the job market during the 2020-21 academic year. I will be available for interviews at the virtual EEA meetings in December 2020 and the virtual AEA-ASSA meetings in January 2021.
