Dr Joseph Zammit-Lucia in 2016

Joe Zammit-Lucia is an author, commentator, leadership adviser and sometime photographic artist. Founder of the RADIX network of public policy think tanks.


Zammit-Lucia is a founder of the RADIX network of public policy think tanks that includes RADIX – the think tank for the radical centre (UK), the RADIX Centre for Business, Politics & Society (Amsterdam), POLITIKA, the RADIX Youth Wing, and Big Tent.

Born in Malta, Zammit-Lucia qualified as a physician from the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine (now part of UCL), University of London. Following medical practice in the UK National Health Service, he was a medical officer in the Royal Air Force.

He then joined the pharmaceutical industry working for Glaxo (now GSK) in the UK and in Germany holding various executive roles spanning research and development, marketing, global brand management, industry economics and public policy. With his then partner, he set up Cambridge Pharma Consultancy, a management advisory firm with offices in Cambridge (UK), and New York and a representative office in Tokyo. The firm was divested to IMS Health (now IQVIA) in 2001 following which Joe established his own advisory practice acting as a leadership adviser to senior business leaders.

Since then Zammit-Lucia has become more involved in political and public policy issues, in particular, the inter-relationship between business and politics. He is a regular speaker and commentator and an adviser to boards and business leaders on enhancing business success in an ever more politicised market environment.

His latest book The New Political Capitalism bridges the gap between the reality of the relationship between politics and business. It has been described as 'a landmark book' and 'a major contribution to the emerging literature on the future of capitalism'.

Zammit-Lucia has acted as special advisor to the director general, International Union for Conservation of Nature and was a member of the Dean's Advisory Group at the College of Arts and Science at Florida International University. He is an advisory board member of the Singapore Forum for Long Term Investors.

He is a regular commentator on business and political issues with commentary having appeared in the Financial Times, the Guardian, the Economist, CityAM, Reaction, Comment Central, Finance Monthly, Het Financieele Dagblad (Netherlands), Achgut and Forum (Germany), Vvox (Italy), Agenda Publica and El País (Spain), The Stanford Review of Social Innovation (US), Friends of Europe (Brussels), the Times of Malta.

Other interests[edit]

Zammit-Lucia has been interested in the use of photography as social commentary. His series of formal portraits of endangered animal species was exhibited in multiple museums and private exhibits. His book First Steps: Conserving our Environment resulted from his photography exhibits at the United Nations headquarters in New York and Geneva.

Sociological studies in a museum setting[1] and an educational setting[2] showed that the images had a significant impact in how people related to wild animals.

His series City of Color is an exploration of the eclecticism of the City of New Orleans through a series of portraits of the colourful characters that inhabit it and give it life.
