Dr Camila Villard Duran, GLF 2014-16


Camila Villard Duran is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Law at the University of São Paulo (USP) and an Associate Global Leaders Fellow at the Global Economic Governance Programme. The purpose of her research is to develop an interdisciplinary critical reflection on the International Monetary Fund’s institutional design, aiming to contribute with policy proposals to enhance the Fund’s legitimacy and accountability, particularly towards emerging and developing countries.

Camila completed her Ph.D. in Law at USP and the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (double degree). She developed an applied and comparative research on central bank accountability. She is the author of the books “The legal framework for the monetary policy: a case study” and “Law and money: the Brazilian Supreme Court and the judicial review of monetary stabilization policies” (in Portuguese).

“I am very excited to be part of the Global Leaders Fellowship Programme. This is a great opportunity to develop my post-doctoral research with leading scholars in international political economy as well as researchers and practitioners from all over the world. I am looking forward to sharing ideas and developing new networks in these vibrant academic environments. I strongly believe that academic institutions – such as the Universities of Oxford, Princeton and São Paulo - are important forums for public policy debates, influencing and shaping policy strategies and serving as a social forum to hold political institutions accountable. I wish to contribute to this objective.”
