Takuya Onoda

Max Weber Fellow

Max Weber Programme for Postdoctoral Studies


Takuya Onoda obtained his Ph.D. in Political Science from the London School of Economics (LSE) in 2019, and he will join Sciences Po as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellow. He has bachelor’s and master’s degrees in law and political science from the University of Tokyo and has been a visiting doctoral student at Sciences Po.

Takuya’s research is in the fields of comparative public policy and comparative politics in rich democracies, with particular interests in the state, regulatory politics, and health and social policies. His current work focuses on the politics of unelected bodies, such as independent regulatory agencies and expert committees. In his book project, based on a comparative study of drug funding policies in Europe and Japan, he examines the role of such bodies in policymaking and their implications for democratic governance.

He has also worked on European integration and EU policy, especially in the domains of social and industrial policies.

His research has been supported by grants from EU Horizon 2020, the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science, and the Konosuke Matsushita Memorial Foundation.

Takuya has taught undergraduate and master’s level courses on comparative public policy, comparative politics, and political economy at the LSE and King’s College London.
