Tuukka Brunila

Tuukka Brunila studies at the University of Helsinki as a PhD student in social and moral philosophy. He is working in the Centre of Excellence in Law, Identity and the European Narratives (Eurostorie) at the faculty of social sciences. He specialises in political theory and philosophy. Tuukka’s doctoral thesis is about the 1920s intellectual crisis of liberalism in the Weimar Republic. The work will discuss concepts such as sovereignty, de-politicisation and the public economy. These concepts, as the thesis emphasises, are still relevant and crucial to understanding today’s Europe. Tuukka’s teaching responsibilities at Eurostorie include courses on populism and classics in the European political tradition.
