My research interests encompass questions at the juncture between electoral studies, party politics, public policy, European studies, economy and history. I am involved in several collaborative projects, all of them with a strong focus on international comparison and mixed-methods.
My post-doctoral research explores a central aspect of democracy, the connection between policies offered by parties ahead of elections and their policy activities once in office. In doing so, I am seeking to measure party responsiveness to voters as well as the degree of political commitments and how they are translated into real policies. Between 2014 and 2018, I have benefited from support from the French Research Agency (ANR) to the PARTIPOL project.
Since the mid 1980s, European integration has entered in a phase of acceleration which leads the European Union to establish itself as a full-fledged political space whose prerogatives and interventions become more and more palpable at the domestic level. What are the consequences of this process on party competition and representative democracy?
The Comparative Agendas Project (CAP) is a collaborative effort to measure and explain policy change in a truly comparative and dynamic perspective.
