Department of Organization


Kontor: KIL/14.A-4.78

My core research interest centers on the notion of 'political organization' in political parties, social movements, and activist networks. I am particularly interested in the organization of political parties and how radical parties manage the process of entering parliament and engaging in day-to-day politics without losing their radical identity. Empirically, I focus on political parties such as The Alternative in Denmark and Podemos in Spain, but I have also conducted empirical analyses of other political phenomena such as Occupy Wall Street and the Trump administration.
