Mads Dagnis Jensen

I am an associate professor in the Department of International Economics, Government and Business where I do research within comparative political economy. Specifically, I examine variation between western democracies when it comes to institutions (polity), political actors (politics) and regulations (policy). I am particularly interested in policy-making, that is how public policies are shaped by the polity (institutions) and politics (the political actors). Theoretically, I apply institutional theory, negotiation theory, coordination theory, and theories on policy-making including behavioral economics. I have used a wide range of methods such as case studies, comparative studies, mixed-methods studies, standard regression, multi-level modelling, principal component analysis, cluster analysis and machine learning.

Primary research areas
  • Coordination in core executives
  • Institutions and policy processes in the European Union with emphasis on market integration, Euroscepticism and Brexit
  • Political systems with special interest in Denmark, Germany, United Kingdom, the United States, France, Italy and Poland
  • Algorithmic and behavioral public policy including regulation
Administrative tasks

BA thesis coordinator at the International Business and Politics Programme and Funding coordinator at the Department of International Economics, Government and Business
