Research

 

My research falls broadly into the following six areas:

  1. The impact of historical legacies - especially of communist regimes - on political attitudes and institutions.

  2. The politics of democratization and democratic backsliding

  3. Explaining the electoral success of ex-communist and populist political parties in Eastern Europe 

  4. The politics of IMF programs in Eastern Europe and Latin America

  5. Explaining political attitude formation and change in authoritarian and post-authoritarian regimes

  6. Understanding attitudinal and behavioral responses to political crises such as protests and repression
