PhD defence: Louise Thorn Bøttkjær

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Louise Thorn Bøttkjær has submitted her thesis entitled: Votes for sale - Essays on clientelism in new democracies

 
Friday, March 8, 2019 - 13:00 to 15:00

During electoral campaigns in new democracies, parties and candidates often employ clientelist strategies such as vote buying to mobilize electoral support. Building on field experiments and regression analyses of numerous data sources including cross-country data from Africa and Latin America and two new surveys from South Africa, the dissertation—which consists of a framing paper and four articles—seeks to increase our knowledge of how widespread clientelism is in new democracies such as South Africa and why and under what conditions it flourishes.
