Tarek Mostafa

I am an economist at the University of London (Institute of Education), LLAKES research centre. I am mainly interested in economic and social policy with a particular emphasis on the economics of education, educational inequalities, political economy and economic competitiveness. I hold a PhD in Economics, Summa Cum Laude, from the University of Aix Marseille (France), and an MA in Political Economy from the Saint Joseph University (Beirut – Lebanon). My research spans several areas: The analyses of educational inequalities in developed OECD countries and in North Africa, and the assessment of educational performance and policy. I also conducted research for the European Commission on a number of subjects such as the quality of work and employment in Europe and the non-market returns to education on health, social cohesion, and subjective wellbeing. www.tarekmostafa.net
