Andrew Cartwright is a Research Fellow at the Center for Policy Studies specializing in rural development.  He joined CEU from the University of Liverpool, UK in 2002. 

He holds a PhD in law from the University of Warwick.  His doctoral research was a history of land and agrarian reforms in Romania and a case study of the post-socialist restitution laws.  After an interruption at the Charity Law Unit, University of Liverpool, the rural research focus was restarted with a post-doctoral position at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle/Saale, Germany.

Since beginning at CEU, Andrew Cartwright has been involved in research on the rural transition in several post-socialist countries, including the development of private land ownership in Mongolia, emerging land markets in Ukraine and Kazakhstan, rural civil society in Romania, the implementation of the EU’s cohesion policy in rural Hungary and most recently, the implications of demographic changes for rural land use in central and eastern Europe.

At CPS, Andrew has been involved in promoting public policy teaching and research at CEU, mentoring on the Open Society Institute’s International Policy Fellowship programme, teaching Rural Development Policy since 2005 and mentoring MA and PhD students.

He is the editor of the Policy Documentation Center which is one of the largest online collections of policy papers from the former socialist countries.
