Tel.: (+49-6221) 54 76 96
Giulio Pugliese specializes in the politics, both domestic and international, of the Asia-Pacific with a focus on Japan, China and the United States. He has presented at a variety of venues, and published articles and contributing chapters concerning academic, policy-oriented and commercial themes in Italy, the U.S. and Japan.
He earned a Laurea (B.A.) in Political Science and East Asian Studies at the University of Naples, "L'Orientale" (cum laude), an M.A. (Honors and Distinction) in International Relations and International Economics (concentrating on East Asian Studies) at the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University. He is currently completing a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge after extensive fieldwork in Tokyo, where he was based at the National Graduate Research Institute for Policy Studies (GRIPS).
Giulio has worked in Japan for the last four years – as an intern at Kyodo News, as a “foreign civil servant” in Azuchi and Ōmihachiman City Hall, with the JET Programme, and at the Mitsubishi Research Institute writing on arms export regulations for a study commissioned by Japan's Ministry of Economics Trade and Industry (METI). He has also worked as a freelance translator from Japanese to English for academic and policy publications.
These experiences, together with his formal tertiary education, have given him a multidisciplinary approach that weds traditional social science methodologies with the broader concerns of area studies specialists and historians.
Giulio is very excited of being part of the academic institution that once hosted Max Weber, and hopes to further his understanding of the Asia-Pacific in order to contribute to that noble tradition.
