Angela Wigger is specialised in the discipline of Global Political Economy and researches capitalist crises and responses from a historical materialist perspective. Focal points are the geopolitics of EU industrial and antitrust policy, its financing, industrial re-shoring and on-shoring attempts, the "competitiveness" fetish, internal devaluation and debt-led accumulation in the age of rentier capitalism.

Angela co-edits the book series Progress in Political Economy (PPE), the journal Capital&Class, and chairs the supervisory board of the Centre for Research of Multinational Corporations (SOMO).

She wrote "The Politics of European Competition Regulation. A Critical Political Economy Perspective" (with H.Buch-Hansen, Routledge) and published in journals like New Political Economy, New Political Science, RIPE, JCMS, Economy&Society, Globalizations, Geoforum, Capital&Class, Ephemera, Global Political Economy, and many more. Her PhD was titled Competition for Competitiveness. The Politics of Transformation of the EU Competition Regime (2008).
