Främsta forsknings- och undervisningsområden

  1. Jämförande politik
  2. Politiska partier och regeringar
  3. Politiskt beteende och politisk psykologi

Pågående forskning och undervisning

Min forskning fokuserar framför allt på politiska partier och koalitionspolitik i Västeuropeiska parlamentariska demokratier, t ex på ämnen som regeringsbildning, fördelning och omfördelning av ministerposter, beslutsfattande i koalitionsregeringar och legislativt beteende. Jag forskar även om politiskt beteende/politisk psykologi, framför allt med fokus på att förklara protestbeteende och radikalisering. Andra forskningsområden jag fokuserar på är statsbyggnad, korruption och utrikespolitiskt beslutsfattande. 

Jag undervisar i jämförande politik, politisk psykologi och forskningsmetoder.
