PhD defence: Emil Krastrup Husted

In order to obtain the PhD degree, Emil Krastrup Husted has submitted his thesis entitled: There is always an alternative: A study of control and commitment in political organization.

Tuesday, November 21, 2017 - 16:00 to 18:00

This doctoral study explores the case of The Alternative, a recently elected party in Denmark, by utilizing concepts and methods from organization studies and political theory. The study’s primary purpose is to understand how a political party manages to mobilize support from across the political spectrum without having any policies to show, and how it subsequently succeeds in maintaining that support throughout the process of entering parliament.
