Professor Jason Sharman
Tax havens, money laundering, and cross-border corruption; historical international relations
Professor Sharman’s research is mainly focused on two separate topics. The first is the regulation of global finance relating to international money laundering, grand corruption and tax havens. The second is the international relations of the early modern world, especially as these relate to European encounters with other civilisations, and the development of empire and sovereignty. Professor Sharman has been a professor in the Department of Politics and International Studies at the University of Cambridge and a fellow of King’s College since 2017. He was educated in Australia, Russia and the United States, and earlier held positions at the American University in Bulgaria, the University of Sydney and Griffith University.
