Arcangelo’s research interests focus on modern development economics, with broad applications to labor, political economy, education, gender and family. Part of his research concentrates on the long-term influence of the institution of slavery on contemporary human capital accumulation, racial inequality, and family formation.
The other line of research looks at the political economic implications of the enfranchisement of youths and females, causes and consequences of civil conflicts, the long-term influence of bio-geographical conditions, and the origins of the Italian “mafia”.
Arcangelo Dimico joined IZA as a Research Fellow in February 2019.
