Prior to coming to FGV Sao Paulo Law, Professor Kroncke served as Senior Fellow at the East Asian Legal Studies Program at Harvard Law School. He has published articles on the history of legal transplantation, comparative constitutionalism and law and development, with a current substantive focus on comparative labor law. His forthcoming book from Oxford University Press examines the historical role of US-China relations in the formation of modern American legal internationalism and the decline of American legal comparativism. His current projects focus on the relationship of law to economic democracy, the international proliferation of Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs), and the comparative performance of public natural resource funds.
