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.
The Comparative Agendas Project (CAP) is a collaborative effort to measure and explain policy change in a truly comparative and dynamic perspective.
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.
